HPDG Announcement Welcomed At Long Last

Date: 6/4/2010

John Healy MP announced the HPDG on 6th April 2010 - see http://www.communities.gov.uk/news/corporate/1532722

John Silvester, Spokesperson for the Society, told Planning magazine that "we welcome the announcement, at long last! However, given that the actual amount councils receive is based on their performance in achieving a 5 and 10 year housing land supply, some authorities whose area is subject to particularly declining housing market conditions, will undoubtedly suffer as a consequence. This emphasizes the vital importance of having their SHLAA and land supply assessments as up to date as possible, and certainly subject to regular market reviews of viability."
