Two important points are confirmed by Ouseley J in St Modwen Developments v SoS for CLG and East Riding of Yorkshire Council [2016] EWHC 968 (Admin).  First, there is no requirement for a site to have existing planning permission in order for the site to be available for housing supply for the purposes of NPPF para 47.  Second, the LPA had been entitled not to assess housing need only by reference to their own area.
