The Welsh Government requires the Council as Local Planning Authority to “ensure that sufficient land is genuinely available (or will become available) to provide a 5-year supply of land for housing” (Planning Policy Wales, Edition 9, paragraph 9.2.3).

Annual reports are produced which monitor and assess the housing land supply in Rhondda Cynon Taf (excluding the Brecon Beacons National Park).

View the latest Rhondda Cynon Taf Joint Housing Land Availability Study 2017, base-dated 1 April 2017. This report shows that at 1 April 2017, the Council has sufficient housing land available for 1.3 years.
