5 year housing land supply

Hi,

Has anyone managed to get a developer to sign a standalone Statement of Common Ground in respect of their 5 year housing land supply as suggested by the PPG (Paragraph 036 (Reference ID: 3-036-20180913) that is not also part of a Local Plan EIP?

We have got a s78 appeal coming up in July and it would be really helpful to see what other people's experience is. Thanks in advance!

Hi Jo. If it helps, we have had a handful of S78 cases where the appellant has agreed a partial SoCG on 5YHLS and where we've agreed a limited number of points to be argued over. (But none where we've had complete agreement over every point.)

Hi Jo
​​​​​​​Are you referring to a SOCG for individual sites to inform and evidence your 5LS, rather than a single SOCG for the purpose of the appeal? I too would be very interested to find out if anyone has this level of information for forecasting/delivery; what form this takes; and how it has been prepared and agreed? As an authority, we monitor in excess of 350 sites each year, many of which are +10 units. Preparing and agreeing a SOCG (in any form) for just a proportion of these sites would be a huge strain on resources in the very least.

We emailed all our contacts on our list of sites we have in our 5 yls in December, very simple email enclosing an even simpler spread sheet for them to complete.  I didn't think we would get many responses but in fact with a short timescale (3 weeks) and a reminder the majority responded.  A lot of their trajectory did not match our agreed methodology, but we went with it as they know their sites better than us.
