Interim Position Statement for housing development
Our housing supply position is kept under review.
If we're able to demonstrate a five-year supply of housing is required in national policy, then planning law requires that planning permission applications must be determined in accordance with the development plan - unless material indications state otherwise. But if supply falls below five years, our interim decision statement will be used to determine planning applications.

Small Site Windfall Study
'Windfall development' is the term used for the development of any land that's not been specifically identified as available in the local plan process.

Small site Windfall development has formed a significant part of the overall supply of past residential development in Rutland.
The National Planning Policy Framework states that local planning authorities may make an allowance for windfall sites as part of their anticipated supply if they have compelling evidence that such sites have consistently become available in the local area and will continue to provide a reliable source of supply.
Evidence in the Small Site Windfall Study supports the inclusion of an allowance for small windfall development in the calculation of Rutland's housing supply:
