Factual Information on National Policy and Housing Supply:

The  Housing Delivery Test (HDT), and Local Housing Need (LHN) 'standard method' requirement, mean:

  • Dartford officially completed 3,206 (net) new homes over the last three financial years.  This delivery track record results in a HDT output of 161%. Dartford faces no HDT sanctions.
  • The government's LHN standard method resulted in a requirement of 797p.a. dwellings for the Borough.  This is within the Dartford's Local Plan current (Core Strategy) housing aims of 585 to 865p.a. dwellings, but will be updated on the basis of new national datasets.
  • Dartford’s robust 5 Year Deliverable Housing Land Supply remains fully compliant with new national policy. Dartford’s deliverable Five Year Supply information PDF, 1662.78 KB. flows from the large scale growth that is underway in line with the adopted Core Strategy.
