Making sense of the numbers!

Some confusion appears to have arisen over how many houses are now requrired to meet the housing target.  Knocking off those already built and those with permission leaves a far lower figure than 47,500 – numbers quoted vary but one of 20,000 is common.

Playing around with the numbers does not alter the fact that a target of 47,500 is a total of 47,500 and thats it.  You cannot knock off the numbers built or the number of permissions granted.  47,500 is 47,500!

Council plays the numbers game. Badly.
