The Housing Delivery Test is an annual measurement of housing delivery published annually by the Government at local authority level.
Preparation of a Housing Delivery Test Action Plan is required if housing delivery in the preceding three years is less than 95% of the housing delivery requirement set by the Government.
Following the adoption of the Local Plan 2016-2036 Part 1: Planning Strategy we contacted the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) in order to request it to re-run the Housing Delivery Test calculation for the most recent measurement period 2016/17-2018/19 based on the newly adopted Local Plan housing requirement.
The Housing Delivery Test recalculation letter from MHCLG confirms a 'Pass' score of 108% in the Housing Delivery Test 2019 measurement.

The Interim Housing Delivery Test Action Plan outlines the challenges facing an area in terms of housing delivery. It also identifies measures to maintain or improve levels of delivery.
It is interim because it relates to the 2009 Local Plan position.
