Housing monitoring

Explains what the strategic housing land availability assessment is and how to access it, whether the council has a 5-year supply of housing land, and details of the council's brownfield register.

How is housing development monitored in the East Riding?

Housing development, and the land available for new housing is monitored annually through the Housing Land Supply Position Statement (HLSPS). 

Some of the data used in the HLSPS also informs the Annual Monitoring Report.

Does the council have a 5-year supply of deliverable housing sites?

Yes. The council is able to demonstrate a supply of deliverable sites well in excess of 5 years for the period 2021/22 to 2025/26. As the Local Plan Strategy Document is more than 5 years old, the requirement for the supply calculation is based on the local housing need figure determined through the Government's standard method outlined in national policy (4,631 dwellings for the 5-year period). The council has prepared Housing Land Supply Position Statement (HLSPS) for the period 2021/22 to 2025/26. This identifies many sites that will be able to deliver new homes over the next five years and demonstrates a deliverable supply equivalent to 10.4 years.

The table below includes a spreadsheet of all the sites included in the HLSPS, as well as data and reports from previous years:

Will the Housing Land Supply Position Statement (HLSPS) be updated?

Yes. The HLSPS is updated annually. The next update will provide the housing land supply position for the period 2022/23 to 2026/27.

Where can I view reports from previous years?

In previous years, the supply position has been reported through an annual Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). These are available to view below:

What is the Brownfield Register?

A Brownfield Register is a schedule of brownfield sites (also known as 'previously developed land') that are suitable for housing. To be considered for inclusion on the register, sites must meet the following criteria:

  • Available - sites should be deliverable or developable. Deliverable sites are those that offer a suitable location for housing now and offer a realistic prospect of being under construction in the next five years. Developable sites are those sites likely to come forward later on (e.g. between six to ten years).
  • Capable of supporting five or more dwellings or more than 0.25 hectares in size.
  • Capable of development - sites should be free from constraints or, where there are constraints, these can be suitably mitigated.

The register includes sites with and without planning permission and is largely informed by the SHLAA (see above). There are two parts to the register. Part 1 comprises those sites that meet the criteria listed above. Part 2 includes sites where the council has granted 'permission in principle' for housing development (see below). The register is presented in two different formats below and is accompanied by a series of maps identifying their extents and locations. An ESRI 'shapefile' is available for viewing the sites in GIS programmes (e.g. ESRI ArcMap).

Part 2 - Permission in principle

Part 2 of a Brownfield Land Register is a subset of Part 1. The council has identified three sites for inclusion on Part 2 of the register. Following a period of consultation and consideration of all the relevant planning issues, 'permission in principle' has been granted on the sites listed below. Permission in principle is a new form of planning permission that seeks to agree with the use and scale of housing proposed. A further, more detailed permission would be required before any development could start.

Further details on the individual sites and the permission in principle process can be viewed on the council's Public Access website. Please use the reference numbers set out above.

2016 Brownfield Register pilot

The council was one of a number of pilot authorities selected to prepare a Brownfield Register in 2016. Details from the 2016 version of the Register are set out below.

During the pilot phase, a number of sites were submitted to us for inclusion in the Register. Some of these were rejected on the basis that they do not meet the criteria. The spreadsheet below lists these sites and the reason(s) for their exclusion from the Register.
