Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment [SHLAA]

The SHLAA is a technical document listing sites with potential for housing development in the future.

The National Planning Policy Framework [NPPF] requires Local Planning Authorities to produce a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment [SHLAA]. 

It identifies potential sources of land which may be available for housing. 

A SHLAA should identify, updated annually, a supply of specific deliverable housing sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against the district housing requirements. It should also identify additional land to ensure choice and competition in the market, plus specific, developable sites or broad locations for growth, for years 6-10 and, where possible, for years 11-15 and beyond.

2016 - Call for Sites

As part of the new Local Plan for the District, a Call for Sites is in place - this seeks to identify all land available for development and to be considered as part of the Local Plan preparations. Find out more details >>
