Land supply

Housing land supply

We are required by the Scottish Government to make sure there is enough land available for the construction of housing by having an effective Housing Land Supply to meet the identified housing needs.

Find out about our 2022 survey and audit 

We carry out an annual Housing Land Audit to monitor the amount of land available for new housing development and understand how our Housing Land Supply is changing year on year.

This helps us address any housing supply issues in the plan-making process.

The Housing Land Audit identifies housing sites with a capacity of four or more units in North Lanarkshire at the survey base date, 31 March of the audit year. It includes:

  • land with planning permission for residential development and sites under construction

  • land allocated for residential development in the Adopted Development Plan

  • other land with agreed residential potential

North Lanarkshire consists of three Housing Sub-Market Areas (HSMAs):

  • Cumbernauld (CN)
  • Airdrie/Coatbridge (AC)
  • Motherwell (MW)

The data in the 2022 Housing Land Audit is structured by HSMA.

Details of the housing totals and information on sites in the 2022 Housing Land Audit are available below.
