Consumer Scam Alerts

Norfolk County Council Trading Standards are highlighting the latest consumer scams in Norfolk.

The Government requires that Local Planning Authorities should ensure that there is a regular supply of land that is suitable, available and deliverable for housing development.

The amount of land available should be sufficient to fulfil the housing requirement for the next five years.

Five-Year Housing Land Supply Statements are prepared by North Norfolk District Council annually to help predict the amount of housing that will be built in the District over the next five years.

The statement identifies how many dwellings already have planning permission but have not yet been built and makes allowances for some sites which have not yet secured planning permission but where the likelihood of development taking place in the next five years is high.

The Government has introduced a standard methodology which changes the way that local authorities establish the local need for housing. This new approach is based on the latest available national population and household projections. As a result the Council has published an interim statement in order to detail the Council’s latest available position on housing land supply.

A revised statement is intended to be produced to account for the latest release of household projections (September 2018), and following confirmation of the Governments intended approach to establishing local housing need. However, there remains uncertainty as the Government has indicated its intention to review the standard methodology.

Further information will be provided when available.
