Authority monitoring report

See reports that show if we are meeting objectives and key dates published for the production of Local Development Framework documents.

Previously known as the annual monitoring report, this includes policies in the adopted Core Strategy and other LDF documents.

We publish the AMR in December each year and the reporting period covers the period April to March of the preceding year.

Housing delivery test action plan

In 2018 the NPPF introduced the housing delivery test (HDT) as a new way to measure housing delivery.  It measures the amount of housing completed against the number of homes that are required for an area, over the preceding three years. The Government publishes the results on an annual basis (usually January - February). Local authorities are required to prepare an action plan each year where they deliver below the 95% threshold. 

The action plan seeks to understand housing delivery at the local level by looking at past delivery as well as the future supply of housing and considers reasons for under-delivery. The action plan also explores a range of activities that have already been implemented in the future, to minimise the risk of under-delivery and boost housing delivery within the borough of Lewisham
