Housing Delivery Test Action Plan
In 2018 the Government published a revised version of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). As part of the changes a new Housing Delivery Test (HDT) was introduced to be implemented on a phased basis. Once fully implemented the HDT will have the following consequences:
- The publication of an action plan if housing delivery falls below 95% of a local planning authority's adopted housing requirement over the previous three years;
- A 20% buffer on local planning authority's five year land supply if housing delivery falls below 85% of the adopted housing requirement; and
- The 'presumption in favour of sustainable development' in the NPPF would apply automatically if housing delivery falls below 75% of the adopted housing requirement, once transitional arrangements have ended in November 2020. It should be noted that the presumption will apply if housing delivery falls below 45% of the housing requirement in November 2019.
The Government published its 2018 HDT Measurement in February 2019. This indicated that the borough had delivered 48% of its housing requirement in the preceding three years. Therefore an Action Plan is required to be published.
This Action Plan has been prepared to show how the Council is responding to the challenge of ensuring more homes are built in Haringey and faster. In line with National Planning Practice Guidance, it identifies the reasons for under-delivery and sets out measures the Council intends to take to try and improve levels of delivery.
