Representation Summary:

We are concerned that projected delivery from some sites has been included in the trajectory, without there being sufficient clear evidence of deliverability, contrary to the policy and guidance in the NPPF / PPG.

The default position is that sites in category (b) should not be included in the 5YHLS unless there is clear evidence of deliverability. It should be noted that PPG ID: 68-007-20190722 is only an indication of what might be considered clear evidence. Whilst the conjunctive word is 'or' it is not the case that one of the forms of evidence given as an example will necessarily be sufficient on its own, rather a rounded view of the evidence available has to be reached.

We are concerned that some sites have been included, that fall into Category (b), for which there does not appear to be sufficient, or indeed in some cases any, clear evidence of deliverability.
