The first HDT results, covering the three-year period from April 2015 to March 2018, were published in February 2019. These results require Islington to produce an action plan to assess the causes of under-delivery and identify actions to increase delivery in future years. Islington’s 2018 Action Plan is available to download at the bottom of the page.
