5 Year Housing Land Supply Developer Survey 2023

Closed 9 Oct 2023

Opened 26 Jul 2023


As part of its ongoing monitoring of the supply of housing land, Westmorland and Furness Council is undertaking its annual exercise of contacting owners/agents/developers of sites allocated for development, as well as unallocated sites of 10 or more dwellings that have been granted planning permission.

The purpose of this exercise is to collect information on development intentions including timescales, likely build-out rates and any barriers that are delaying sites from coming forward. This information will assist the Council in building a robust picture of housing land supply. 

We would be most grateful if you could complete the survey (link below). The survey consists of 11 questions, although you may not be required to complete them all.

If you have any queries regarding this request for information or would like to discuss your site with a Council Officer please do not hesitate to contact the Planning Policy team using the details provided.

This is a private online survey, and only Council officers will be able to view your response. However please note that the information you provide will be used to inform the preparation of our Housing Land Annual Position Statement which will be published on our website.

We will need to include the evidence you provide in the housing land statement, as for sites to be included in our five year land supply we must be able to provide clear evidence that completions will begin on site within five years. If any of the information you provide is strictly confidential please make this clear in your response and we will ensure it is redacted in the published statement.
