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.

To inform the preparation of future land supply statements the Council commissioned an update to the 2017 Strategic Housing Market Assessment. This update considers the current evidence in relation to future housing requirements in the District and should be read alongside the Five Year Land Supply Statement.
