Housing Land Supply Monitoring

The Housing Land Supply Monitor (previously the Housing Land Availability Monitor), is the principal information source for annual housing land supply updates within Malvern Hills District.

The HLSM contains analysis of the housing land situation as a position statement every April.

The HLSM study examines the trend in housing completions, progress in the provision of affordable housing and the contributions towards the supply of housing on previously developed land.

This report examines Malvern Hills District's supply of available and deliverable housing land, and provides an update on Malvern Hills' five year housing land supply position.

The status of each site is obtained from site surveys carried out by planning officers in the spring of each reporting year.

This report has been produced to take into account the continued work of Malvern Hills District Council, Worcester City Council and Wychavon District Council's joint working role in monitoring the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP), and tracking progress towards meeting the housing requirements of South Worcestershire from 2006 to 2030.

The Housing Land Supply Monitoring Reports and accompanying Policy Position Statements are available to view below.
