The government has published their Housing Delivery Test, which show that eight local authorities failed to deliver more than 45 per cent of their housing target. This means those Council now face a 'presumption in favour of sustainable development', which means that that proposed developments should be granted planning permission unless their adverse impacts 'significantly and demonstrably' outweigh their benefits. 75 further Councils have also been told by the Government they need to implement an additional 20 per cent buffer of land supply. These statistics emphasise the drive to housing provision through the planning system.
