To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will make an assessment of the implications for the planning applications he has called in relating to sites in Hatfield Peverel, Essex of the assessment in the Five Year Housing supply statement as of 31 December 2017 published by Braintree District Council that the Council has exceeded the five year supply of deliverable sites under the Liverpool methodology.

I am afraid I am unable to make such an assessment. This is because the Inspector is currently preparing his reports following the inquiry that took place in December, and these are due for submission to the Secretary of State by 26 March. Anything I were to say on this matter could prejudice the Secretary of State’s decisions in due course.
