To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what methodology is used to determine his Department's Objectively Assessed Housing Need and Strategic Housing Market Assessment figures.
Answer (Dominic Raab)
There is currently no standard way of assessing housing need among local planning authorities, which causes delays and increases costs for councils. In the draft revisions to the National Planning Policy Framework, we have proposed a standard method that will result in an easier, cheaper and more transparent process. We intend to publish the revised Framework this summer.
