In addition to these the report details progress in relation to various indicators linked to the Sustainability Objectives set out in the Local Plan Sustainability Appraisal (SA), and sets out the headline information related to the council's Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Register. Publication of the report is recommended in order to fulfil the legal reporting requirements, as well as to reinforce the evidence base for existing and emerging local plan policies. The report includes an updated picture of recent and anticipated housing delivery in the borough, and sets out that as of April 2021 the council was compliant with the requirement under national planning policy to identify a 5-year supply of deliverable housing sites.
