Please find attached a letter we have received regarding a recent Ministerial Statement relating to the supply of housing in a NH Plan.  The outcome of this statement is that if you have housing sites identified within your NH Plan and Hart District Council has more than a three year supply of housing then there is better protection within the NH Plan area against speculative housing applications.

The full Ministerial Statement can be viewed at http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2016-12-12/HCWS346/

There is likely to be further information on NH Plans set out in the forthcoming Planning White Paper which is due to be published by the Government in January.
