Housing delivery test risky business if fail to meet numbers in the local plan

Date: 3/11/2017

Planning magazine reports that the government's proposal for a housing delivery test means councils could risk falling foul of the NPPF if the number of homes actually delivered are substantially lower than planned for.

Mike Kiely, Chair of the Planning Officers Society, which represents local authority planners, said furthermore: "if you want to be ambitious and plan for higher numbers then the housing delivery test makes this a very big risk locally."
