The letter announces the following changes to PPW and the Development Plans Manual (DPM):
- Revisions to the ‘Housing Delivery’ section of PPW at Appendix 1. The changes remove the five-year housing land supply policy and replace it with a policy statement making it explicit that the housing trajectory, as set out in the adopted LDP, will be the basis for monitoring the delivery of development plan housing requirements as part of LDP Annual Monitoring Reports (AMRs).
- The revocation of Technical Advice Note (TAN) 1: Joint Housing Land Availability Studies (January 2015) in its entirety as a consequence of the policy change to PPW.
- Publication of the DPM (Edition 3) which provides additional guidance on the process of monitoring against the housing trajectory.
