The States are asked to decide:

3. To agree the States Strategic Housing Indicator be set at creating 635 new units of accommodation between 2017 and 2021, with a plus or minus variance of 149 new units to give the flexibility to react to market changes, equating to an annual average of 127 additional units of accommodation with a plus or minus variance of 30 new units of accommodation1;

4. To agree to separate the States Strategic Housing Indicator into an Affordable Housing Indicator set at creating 178 units of Affordable Housing over the next 5 years with a plus or minus variance of 32 new units to give the flexibility to react to demand and market changes and a private market housing indicator of 457 new units of accommodation with a plus or minus variance of 117 new units of accommodation for the same period;

5. To agree that the States will reset the States Strategic Housing Indicator at least every 5 years;

6. Notwithstanding proposition 5, to note that should the Island's housing requirement figures change to such an extent that they go beyond the variances agreed in propositions 3 and 4 above, they will be returned to the States for endorsement;

7. To endorse the Programme of Works, including the development of a Housing Strategy, and to direct the lead Committees identified for each work stream identified in this Policy Letter to prioritise those work streams alongside their current workloads;
