What's the purpose of the form?
The housing element of the general plan must include an inventory of land suitable and available for residential development to meet the locality's regional housing need by income level. As part of that inventory the housing element must identify specific sites or parcels that are available for residential development.
For a housing element or amendment adopted on or after January 1, 2021, the planning agency shall submit to HCD an electronic copy of its inventory of these parcels using standards, forms, and definitions adopted by HCD. Before January 1, 2021, this form is optional, and, after that date, is required to be submitted with the adopted housing element.
