The Darlington Five Year Housing Land Supply Position report sets out the five year housing land supply assessment, for the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2023, when measured against a housing requirement based on an up to date, objectively assessed need (OAN). Paragraph 73 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) outlines that,
“Local planning authorities should identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide a minimum of five years’ worth of housing against their housing requirement set out in adopted strategic policies, or against their local housing need where the strategic policies are more than five years old. The supply of specific deliverable sites should in addition include a buffer (moved forward from later in the plan period) of:

- 10% where the local planning authority wishes to demonstrate a five year supply of deliverable sites through an annual position statement or recently adopted plan, to account for any fluctuations in the market during that year; or
- 20% where there has been significant under delivery of housing over the previous three years, to improve the prospect of achieving the planned supply.”
