Background Information: The updated National Planning Policy Framework (July 2018) introduced a number of new housing monitoring requirements which increase the duties of Local Planning Authorities . These include the Housing Delivery Test and potential for an Action Plan to be required, and the Housing Trajectory and a potential new Annual Position Statement. The NPPF retains the requirements for an Annual Monitoring Report and Brownfield Land Register. The report will set out the proposed response to these requirements.
