Five year housing land supply

Dorset Council is required to identify and update a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their joint local plan requirement. The latest assessment of the five year housing land supply is based on housing land monitoring as at 1 April 2018 and is available below.
 
Dorset Council has prepared the report using data from the former local authorities of West Dorset District Council and Weymouth and Portland Borough Council. Until the new Dorset Council Local Plan is adopted the annual housing targets and 5 year housing land supply will still apply to the West Dorset and Weymouth and Portland adopted plan. The housing land supply assessment will be updated annually to reflect the most up-to-date available data.

Current Land Supply Summary

For the period 2019 to 2024, West Dorset and Weymouth and Portland do not have sufficient supply to meet the five-year supply requirement as required by national policy. The councils can only demonstrate a supply of deliverable sites equivalent to 4.83 years. This is shown in West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland Five Year Housing Land Supply 2018 to 2019 report, Figure 4.1, page 22.
 
Five Year Land Supply Reports from previous years are also available:
