What is the 5-Year Housing Land Supply?

Local Planning Authorities should identify a supply of specific deliverable sites. This should be sufficient to provide a minimum of five years' worth of housing against their housing requirement, as set out in adopted strategic policies. In cases where strategic policies are more than five years old, this should be against their local housing need. 

The 5-year HLS Position Statement should be updated annually. It should also include an appropriate buffer.

See Paragraph 74 of the National Planning Policy Framework for more information.

You can find out more on the website for the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.
