1. Introduction

1.1         The Housing Monitoring Report (HMR) is a technical monitoring report which is prepared annually to provide information on the latest housing position in Blackpool Borough. It reports on housing completions and new housing approvals over a 12 month period, including affordable housing. The 2019 HMR reports on the period from 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2019, drawing on relevant data from a number of sources. 

1.2         Publishing the HMR allows the local authority to monitor progress in the delivery of new housing against its housing target for the plan period.  In particular, it shows how many dwellings have been completed within the plan period and the number of dwellings with planning permission at 31st March 2019. 

1.3         The HMR forms part of the evidence base for the Blackpool Local Plan Part 1: Core Strategy (Core Strategy) and emerging Blackpool Local Plan Part 2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies Document (Local Plan Part 2) and it provides housing data for the Authority Monitoring Report.

1.4         A glossary of technical terms used in the HMR can be found in Appendix A.

1.5         This report reflects the situation in Blackpool at 31st March 2019.

2. Policy context

 

National Planning Policy

2.1         One of the key roles of the planning system is to ensure that new homes are provided in appropriate and sustainable locations through either new build development or the conversion of existing buildings. Local planning authorities are required to plan for and enable a continuous supply of housing to meet the identified housing needs of their local communities. 

 

2.2         The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local authorities to identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years of housing against their housing requirements with an additional buffer of 5% to ensure choice and competition in the market. Where there has been a record of persistent under delivery, this buffer should be increased to 20%. Local authorities are also required to identify a supply of specific, developable sites for years 6-10, and where possible, years 11-15. A statement setting out the latest position in terms of the five year housing supply has been published separately from the HMR.

Local Planning Policy

2.3         The Core Strategy (Adopted January 2016) sets out a housing target of 280 dwellings per annum, which equates to 4,200 additional dwellings between 2012 and 2027. A phased approach means that between 2012 - 2017 the housing target is 250 dwellings per annum, 280 dwellings per annum between 2017 - 2022 and 310 dwellings per annum between 2022 - 2027.

 

2.4         Now the Core Strategy is adopted, work has commenced on the Local Plan Part 2, which will identify how this housing requirement will be met. Consultation took place on a Regulation 18 Scoping Document for this Plan during June/July 2017. This was accompanied by a 'call for potential sites for development'. Informal consultation took place on Proposed Site Allocations and Development Management Policies during January and February 2019.

3. Housing completions

a. Completions 2018/19 and over the Plan Period

3.1         For the monitoring period 1st April 2018 - 31st March 2019 there were 368 dwelling completions (net). This was made up of 239 new build completions and 129 completions from conversions/changes of use. The conversions/changes of use consisted of 67 dwellings that were subject to a grant of planning permission and 62 dwellings that came forward via lawful development certificates for existing or proposed uses, or via prior approval for change of use. This information is set out in Table 1. A schedule of new build completions and demolitions for 2018/2019 is set out in Appendix B and a schedule of completions through permitted conversions and change of use in Appendix C. Dwellings created through conversions/changes of use brought forward via lawful development certificates and prior approval for change of use are shown in Appendix D.

 

3.2         Table 1 also shows how many completions have taken place each year since the beginning of the plan period. Housing delivery has increased over the past two years and the figure for 2018/19 is the second highest recorded.

 

3.3         The table shows that there was a net loss of dwellings in 2013/14 and 2016/17. This is a result of the redevelopment of the Queens Park Estate and flats at All Hallows Road. Properties in these locations have been replaced by high quality family dwellings at lower densities. This redevelopment has helped to improve the quality and choice of the housing offer and to create more sustainable and safer neighbourhoods, but has resulted in a significant loss of dwellings overall.

 

3.4         Since 1st April 2012 1307 dwellings (net) have been completed. This consists of 329 new build dwellings and 978 dwellings created through conversions/changes of use.

b. Summary of Housing Delivery against Local Plan Requirement

 

3.5         Table 2 sets out housing delivery in relation to the Core Strategy requirements. This shows that the 368 completions recorded in 2018/2019 significantly exceeded the requirement of 280 dwellings for the year. However, over the plan period there has been a shortfall in delivery of 503 dwellings, partly as a result of the demolitions at Queens Park and All Hallows Road, which are referred to in paragraph 3.3.

c. Completions by Source

 

3.6         Policy CS2 of the Core Strategy states that provision will be made for the delivery of 4200 new homes in Blackpool between 2012 and 2027 and that these homes will be located on:

  • Identified sites within the existing urban area, including major regeneration sites;

  • Identified sites within the South Blackpool Growth Area; and

  • Windfall sites

 

3.7         Table 3a sets out housing completions via these sources over the Core Strategy period. Completions via these sources are reported separately for new build dwellings in Table 3b and for conversions/changes of use in Table 3c.

 

3.8         Table 3a shows that in 2018/19 there were 167 net completions on identified sites within the existing urban area. Sites have been identified through the SHLAA process since the 2008/09 monitoring year when the SHLAA was first published. A SHLAA update is being prepared, which will replace the existing (2014) SHLAA. However, over the plan period only 103 dwellings (net) have been completed on identified sites within the existing urban area, taking account of the losses caused by the demolitions that have taken place at Queens Park.

 

3.9         There are three sites identified in South Blackpool in the Core Strategy (Moss House Road, Whyndyke Farm and Runnell Farm). In 2018/19, there were 32 completions on these identified sites in South Blackpool. 150 dwellings have been completed on these sites over the plan period.

 

3.10       In 2018/2019 there were 169 net completions on windfall sites (new build and conversions/changes of use). Over the plan period 1,054 dwellings (net) have been completed on windfall sites.

3.11       Table 3b sets out detailed information about new build completions by source. It shows that although 598 new build dwellings have been completed on identified sites within the existing urban area, this equates to only 103 dwellings (net) predominantly due to demolitions at Queens Park. It also shows that there have been 150 new build completions (net) on identified sites in South Blackpool and 76 new build completions (net) on windfall sites.

 

3.12       Table 3b shows that there have been 329 new build completions (net) and 874 new build completions (gross) over the plan period.

3.13       Table 3c shows that conversions/changes of use have been a consistent source of housing supply, accounting for 978 net completions since 2012. This equates to an average of 140 per annum, making a significant contribution to Blackpool's housing supply during the plan period. These conversions are largely due to the change of use of holiday accommodation into permanent residential use within the inner area. The most consistent source of windfall completions has been conversions/changes of use on small sites (sites of 9 dwellings or less). This includes dwellings provided through permitted conversions, prior approvals for change of use and lawful development certificates. An average of 122 dwellings per year have been provided through these sources.

d. Completions on Previously Developed Land (PDL) and Greenfield Sites

3.14       In 2018/19 89% of permitted housing completions (gross) were on PDL. Since 2012 the vast majority (87%) of gross completions in Blackpool have been on PDL, which reflects the built-up nature of the Borough and the Council's priority to maximise growth and opportunity across the town, which includes regenerating and improving existing neighbourhoods and creating aspirational and high quality homes.

e. Completions by Site Size

3.15       The majority of new build completions since 2012 have been on large sites over 1 hectare (77%). Table 5 shows that during 2018/19 , there were 10 (gross) new build completions on sites below 0.4 hectares, 2 on sites between 0.4 to 1 hectare, and 227 on sites over 1 hectare in size.

f. Completions by Dwelling Type and Size

3.16       In 2018/19 a mix of new build house types were developed. Table 6 shows that semi-detached and detached properties were built in the greatest number, with fewer terraced properties and a limited amount of new build flats. Since 2012 the largest percentage of gross new build completions have been semi-detached, accounting for 29% of all new build completions, with detached and terraced properties each accounting for 28% of completions. Flats account for 15% of new build dwellings completed since 2012.

3.17       Table 7 shows that in 2018/19 new build completions were predominantly 3 bed and 4 bed properties and permitted conversions/changes of use were predominantly 2 bed properties. Since 2012 the largest proportion of new build properties have been 3 bed properties (42%) and the largest proportion of permitted conversions/changes of use have been 2 bed properties (50%).

g. Completions by Tenure i.e. Market & Affordable Housing

 

3.18       In 2018/19 there were 142 new build market housing completions and 97 affordable completions (76 local authority and 21 Registered Social Landlord). This is shown in Table 8. Market and affordable housing are defined in Appendix A.

 

3.19       In 2018/19 81 dwellings (gross) in conversions/changes of use provided market housing and 0 provided affordable housing.

h. Completions by Density

 

3.20       The NPPF requires local planning authorities to set out their own approach to housing density to reflect local circumstances. The Core Strategy requires proposals to optimise density, whilst reflecting the characteristics of the site and surrounding area. Building at an optimum density is essential in Blackpool with its limited land resource and will help to sustain local facilities and services. Higher densities are sought in more accessible locations, where the site is within walking distance of town, district or local centres or well-served by public transport. Location, design and site configuration issues will need to be balanced with density considerations, particularly on small sites, in order to achieve the best possible development.

 

3.21       Table 9 shows that in 2018/19 40% of new build dwellings were completed on sites with densities below 30 dwellings per hectare, 35% on sites of 30-50 dwellings per hectare and 25% of new build dwellings were built at densities above 50 dwellings per hectare.

4. Housing commitments

 

a. New Dwellings Permitted in 2018/19

 

4.1         Monitoring planning permissions allows us to identify the potential amount of house building activity for future years. Table 10 shows that 331 dwellings (gross) were granted planning permission in 2018/19, comprising 194 new build dwellings and 137 dwellings in conversions/changes of use. The net total was 304 dwellings, comprising 193 new build and 111 dwellings in permitted conversions/changes of use. 160 dwellings were permitted on PDL and 144 dwellings were permitted on Greenfield land (net). 

 

4.2         Once a reserved matters application is approved, the figures are updated accordingly and recorded as a full planning permission. The outline application is removed from the list of extant permissions to avoid double counting. Where the application involves the renewal of a lapsed permission, the earlier permission is deleted to avoid double counting.

b. Extant Planning Permissions

 

4.3         At the 31st March 2019 there was a stock of 1,508 dwellings (net) with extant planning permission (full or outline[1]) that were left to be built . This comprises 1,206 new build dwellings and 302 conversions. 68% have full or reserved matters planning permission (on sites which have not started or are under construction), which can be implemented without the need for further approval. This is shown in Table 11. Detailed schedules are provided in Appendices E and F.

1 A full planning permission is exant if either the time limit for commencement has not yet expired or the site is partially under construction.  An outline is extant if the time limit for submission of reserved matters has not yet expired. 

 

c. Custom/Self-Build Housing

 

4.4         The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on the Council to keep a register of individuals and associations of individuals who are seeking to acquire a serviced plot of land in the area to bring forward self-build and custom housebuilding projects. The Housing and Planning Act 2016 places a duty on the Council to grant sufficient development permissions in respect of serviced plots of land to meet the demand evidenced by the register.

 

4.5         The Council has set up a self-build and custom housebuilding register to provide an indication of the demand for this type of housing in Blackpool. Further information can be found at www.blackpool.gov.uk/selfbuild

 

4.6         Local authorities are required to grant sufficient development permissions over defined base periods. During the first base period 1 individual was entered onto the Blackpool register. Subsequent base periods will last for twelve months and commence the day immediately following the end date of the previous base period. At the 31st March 2019 no additional entries had been made on the Blackpool register.

 

4.7         Local authorities have a three year timeframe within which the required number of development permissions should be granted in relation to each base period. The first base period runs until 30th October 2019. In relation to this period 1 development permission is required. Since October 31st 2016 the following permissions in respect of plots of land have been granted.

  • 16/0505 - 2 The Knowle - full application for 1 dwelling

  • 16/0229 -  Land to the rear of 199 - 201 Common Edge Road - outline application for 1 dwelling

 

4.8         Therefore, Blackpool Council is meeting the demand as evidenced by its register over the first base period.

 

d. Extant New Build Planning Permissions by Dwelling Type

 

4.9         Table 12 shows that at 31st March 2019, flats formed the greatest proportion of known new build dwellings with extant planning permission, equating to 22% of the total, followed by terraced properties, which formed 20% of the total. 30% of dwellings were of an unknown dwelling type, because they were on sites subject to outline permission where house types were not specified.

e. Extant Planning Permissions for Affordable Housing

 

4.10       At 31st March 2019 the total number of affordable housing units with extant planning permission was 88 (gross); these are all new build units. 

 

f. Land Committed for New Build Residential Development

 

4.11       At 31st March 2019 the combined site area of extant planning permissions for new build residential development (gross) amounted to 54 hectares. This is shown in Table 13.

g. Applications with a Resolution to Approve Subject to the Signing of a Section 106 Agreement

 

4.12       At 31st March 2019 there were no dwellings on sites where there was an application with a resolution to approve subject to the signing of a S106 agreement.


[1] A full planning permission is extant if either the time limit for commencement has not yet expired or the site is partially under construction.  An outline application is extant if the time limit for submission of reserved matters has not yet expired.

Appendix A: Glossary of Terms, Acronyms & Abbreviations

 

Glossary of Terms, Acronyms & Abbreviations

Affordable Housing

Social rented, affordable rented and intermediate housing, provided to eligible households whose needs are not met by the market. Eligibility is determined with regard to local incomes and local house prices. Affordable housing should include provisions to remain at an affordable price for future eligible households or for the subsidy to be recycled for alternative affordable housing provision. 

Allocated

 Land which has been specifically identified in a Local Plan for housing development.

Complete

 A dwelling is said to be complete once it is ready for occupation. For new build dwellings, this is when the roof is on and the windows/doors are in as determined by site survey.  For conversions, this is when the Council Building Control records indicate a completion certificate has been issued, or where this is unavailable, when the dwellings are recorded on the Council Tax records / Valuation office.

Identified

 Land that has previously been identified through the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). Where sites are identified they are no longer windfall sites.

Market Housing

Private housing for sale or rent where price is not controlled and is set in the open market.

Previously Developed Land

Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure. This excludes: land that is or has been occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings; land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill purposes where provision for restoration has been made through development control procedures; land in built-up areas such as private residential gardens, parks, recreation grounds and allotments; and land that was previously-developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape in the process of time.

Under Construction

A dwelling has commenced when the ground has been excavated in preparation for the laying of foundations. At any time between commencement and completion (see above) a building is 'under construction'.

Windfall

Sites which have not been specifically identified as available in the Local Plan process.  They normally comprise previously-developed sites that have unexpectedly become available, and include residential conversions.
