Monitoring Documents

We regularly monitor our progress to check how our policies are being implemented and to measure our performance against targets. This makes us aware of changes that may be necessary when we come to review plans or policies in the future, such as the emerging Bromsgrove District Plan Review. This page contains the most recently published monitoring documents for the district.

Housing Land Supply Reports

These reports collate data on housing land supply in Bromsgrove District and include the district's five year land supply calculation. They record the planning permissions issued for new homes each year and, following comprehensive site visits each spring, calculate the number of homes where development has not started, is under construction, or is a completion. Analysis is included on the type of land where new homes have been built (location, brownfield/greenfield), the size of new dwellings and provision of affordable housing.

2022 Housing Land Availability and 5YLS Report

Five year housing land supply (5YHLS) for Bromsgrove District Council (26 January 2022)

The Bromsgrove District Plan became five years old on the 25th January 2022. Based on NPPF para 74 FN39, the 5YHLS is now based on the calculated Local Housing Need, not the housing requirement in the adopted Local Plan. Local Housing Need has been calculated using the Standard Method as set out in the NPPG.

Namely: 3.23 years supply (See full calculation table below)
