Housing Delivery Test

The Housing Delivery Test (HDT) was introduced through a revision to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) published in July 2018. It is an annual measurement of housing delivery in a local planning authority area. HDT results for each local authority in England are published annually.

The HDT results are published by the Government. The 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 latest Action Plan is available to download at the bottom of the page.
