As of 2017 the quarterly Housing Monitoring Report is no longer produced in its individual format. The supply of housing land on the island continues to be actively monitored with results incorporated into Quarterly and Annual Monitoring Reports which can be found at IDP Annual Monitoring Reports, Quarterly Monitoring Reports & Technical Reports.
The quarterly Housing Monitoring Reports from 2011 to 2016 fulfilled a duty through the existing Development Plans in place at the time to maintain an effective two-year housing supply (new-build or through conversion or sub-division) at any one time in accordance with the Strategic Land Use Plan (2011).
The housing supply target at the time was for of 300 new homes per annum. The reports therefore monitored whether a maintained Housing supply of at least six hundred new dwellings was in place over any two year period.
The focus for the monitoring was the number and type of planning permissions granted (and therefore effectively available for implementation), which was analysed on a quarterly basis. Therefore, the majority of statistical information contained within the accompanying reports related to the number of planning permissions for new dwellings rather than actual dwellings created.
The reports also monitored the distribution of new homes across the Parishes, the proportions of new build versus sub-divisions and conversions, the proportion of new homes on brownfield land and the proportion of dwellings given planning permission that actually get built.
