RCC Corporate Strategy 2022-27 and 5 Year Housing supply – Cllr. 

Nebel wanted to alert the Parish council to the assessment of Rutland’s housing supply as of 31 March 2022 which has been completed and shows that the supply is 4.1 years. Details can be found here: www.rutland.gov.uk/my-services/planning-and-building-control/planning/the-local-plan/housing-supply. 

While this is an improvement on the position of 30 September 2021, the County Council is still unable to demonstrate a robust five-year supply of housing as required in national policy. 

Consequently, decisions on planning applications involving the provision of housing will be tilted in favour of sustainable development, in accordance with Paragraph 11 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). This means that planning permission should be granted unless any adverse impacts of doing so would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits, when assessed against the policies in the NPPF taken as a whole.
