Please see below two recent appeal decisions where the PINS has taken different approaches to the calculation of the five year housing land supply. In the first appeal from Hinckley & Bosworth (reported on in Friday’s Weekly News Summary) the Inspector chose to apply the Liverpool method, where the undersupply from the base-date is apportioned evenly across the remaining years of the plan. The Inspector did so on the grounds that he considered that it would be difficult for the industry to increase supply during the next five years in a period of recession. In the second, in North West Leicestershire Council, the Inspector has applied the Sedgefield method, where the under-supply from the base-date has to be made good within the next five years. He did so by citing the need to ‘boost significantly’ the supply of housing.
