Housing Land Supply

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires Local Planning Authorities to identify and maintain an up-to-date five year supply of deliverable housing sites.  You can download information on both Lewes and Eastbourne councils' five year housing land position below.


We have updated our housing supply position to reflect the position as at 1 April 2017. This note now replaces the position as at 1 April 2016.  A number of previous housing supply position notes, including the 1 October 2015 position produced to support the Joint Core Strategy examination, are available below for information.

Please note that whilst the 1 April 2017 supply note contains the position for the area of the district that falls within the South Downs National Park (SDNP), this is for information only.  If you require the five year housing land position for the SDNP please contact the South Downs National Park Authority.

Information on our five year housing land supply is contained within our local monitoring report.  The latest position is also presented to our Planning Committee on a quarterly basis. You can download reports from our Planning Committee Meetings page.
