The Housing Delivery Test is published annually and triggers the need for councils to produce a Housing Delivery Test Action Plan. This page contains our advice, guidance and resources on how to produce one.
The Housing Delivery Test that was published on 14th January 2022 and we have a mixture of spreadsheets, models, presentations and guidance related to HDT - we keep most of the materials in a special 'forum' on the PAS knowledge hub. Feel free to ask questions there.
This is the fourth year we have been helping councils respond to the Housing Delivery Test (HDT), and we are a bit older and wiser. We have used that wisdom to update our guidance on preparing an Action Plan with the aim of making them an effective tool for councils.
In this presentation you can see the distillation of what we have learned from reading Action Plans over the last few years. The slides sit alongside the guidance and contain some very practical and helpful advice that will save you time and effort.
