SHMAs have a Shelf Life of One Year – Pickles

From his megatstatement yesterday

In response to our commitment made during the passage of theInfrastructure Bill (26 January 2015, Official Report, Column 644), the government is also updating planning guidance to make clear that up to date assessments of housing need should not normally need to be updated for a full 12 months, and that untested assessments of housing need are inevitably less robust than those which have been subject to examination.

So Shmas – and the evergrowing list of privately prepared Anti-SHMAs are only an annual event now – phew there was I thinking that permanent arguments had replaced plan making!
