Ensuring Housing Is Delivered On Land Allocated In Plans - Page 6

Question 12.

What would be the impact of a housing delivery test on development activity?

  • If identified sites are not coming forward, if the delays are beyond the local authorities control, there should be pressures on developers as well.
  • For their part, councils can identify reserve sites but we would like to see them have additional powers. such as compulsorily purchasing land identified for development which is not coming forward, and using Section 106 agreements / bonds to ensure development proceeds as programmed.
  • We propose an Inspector assessing the test before a local authority is forced to identify more land.
