The Council undertook a fact-checking exercise with land bidders and Town and Parish Council's in 2019. The purpose of the fact-checking exercise was to identify if there were any errors, inconsistencies or omissions from an initial assessment using the Site Assessment Methodology. It is important to have up-to-date and accurate information on which to consult more widely.
All sites assessed in that exercise are available to view on the Site Assessment Map (January 2020).
The site assessment scoring sheets for each land bid are grouped by settlement and available to view in the table below.
At the time the council also published a draft settlement performance table alongside the site assessments that showed the draft proposed housing requirement position for each relevant settlement. The table showed the proposed requirement figure, the number of dwellings in the existing committed supply (i.e. those already with planning permission) and the number of dwellings that could be accommodated on the remaining undeveloped allocated sites.
The end column showed a surplus/deficit figure for the settlement. This provided an indication as to where additional site may be required based on the figures known at the time.
Please note: the figures in this table for the requirements were for guidance only and there may need to be changes to the scale and distribution once further data is available following various infrastructure and other capacity studies that are being carried out.
