Joint housing land availability study

It is a requirement for every local planning authority in Wales to undertake a Joint Housing Land Availability Study (JHLAS) on an annual basis in order to monitor the supply of land that is available for housing in their areas.

Planning Policy Wales states that local planning authorities have to ensure that sufficient land is available, or will become available, to ensure a five year land supply for housing.

Housing Land Monitoring Statement 2017

Technical Advice Note (TAN) 1, “Joint Housing Land Availability Studies” by the Welsh Government, provides guidance for calculating the available housing land supply. Whilst the Isle of Anglesey County Council and Gwynedd Council adopted a Joint Local Development Plan in July 2017, given that there wasn’t an up-to-date adopted development plan for Anglesey at the base date of the annual Joint Housing Land Availability Study period (i.e. 1st April, 2017), the guidance states that a full study relating to the availability of land for housing cannot be undertaken for 2017. In order to continue to gain an understanding of what is happening on housing sites, field work and analysis work has taken place and has been documented in the Housing Land Monitoring Statement for 2017. This Statement replaces the 2016 Housing land Monitoring Statement.
