Renfrewshire Council

Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance

Consultation on the Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance (Update) 2017 was undertaken between 20 March 2017 to 2 May 2017. This consultation has now closed.

 

Scottish Planning Policy requires Councils to identify a generous supply of land for housing within the context of the development plan and the local housing strategy.

In examining the Renfrewshire Local Development plan, the Scottish Government Reporter concluded that Renfrewshire had a shortfall in its housing land supply. To address this, the Reporter recommended that the Council prepare Supplementary Guidance, within 1 year of the adoption of the LDP, which would lead to the release of additional housing land in the greenbelt.

On the 10 November 2015 the Planning and Property Policy Board approved the Renfrewshire Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance and it was adopted by the council in December 2015.

The Renfrewshire Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance is a statutory document and forms part of the adopted Renfrewshire Local Development Plan in line with Scottish Government Reporter's recommendation, the Council is required to monitor and review the supplementary guidance. The Council does so through its annual Housing Land Audit.

Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance (Update) 2017

The Planning and Property Policy Board on the 14 March 2017 approved the Renfrewshire Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance for consultation.

Renfrewshire Council is required to monitor and review the Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance and does so through the annual Renfrewshire Housing Land Audit. 

Following the monitoring and review of housing land supply through the Renfrewshire Housing Land Audit 2016, the shortfall in the housing land supply has been reduced from 755 to 230 private sector units.  The Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance therefore requires to be updated to reflect that change.

The Renfrewshire Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance has been updated (see related documents opposite) by changing the shortfall figure and the table in Page 3 of the document to reflect the updated position in the current housing land supply shortfall. There is no change to the detailed framework, criteria and considerations in the supplementary guidance.  they remain as existing.

Consultation on the Housing Land Supply Supplementary Guidance (Update) 2017 was undertaken between 20 March 2017 to 2 May 2017.  This consultation has now closed. 

All comments received by the Council during this consultation will be taken into consideration before finalising the supplementary guidance and presenting it to the Planning and Property Policy Board in Autumn 2017.
