Housing delivery test action plan

The housing delivery test was introduced by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government in 2018.

It measures net additional dwellings built in a local authority‚Äôs area against the homes required. The method for calculating the figure is set out in the housing delivery test measurement rule book. Local planning authorities that don’t fully meet their delivery rate targets are required to address the shortfall.

Results for Hackney

The housing delivery test 2018 measurement results were published on 19 February. We delivered 82% against our target, based on the number of homes delivered in the borough over the 3 year period between 2015 and 2018.

The result requires the Council to prepare an action plan aimed at further increasing housing delivery in Hackney. It also requires a buffer of 20%, which is illustrated in our 2017-18 annual monitoring report.
