Strategic housing land availability assessment

The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) has two parts:

  • A list of sites in the district which may have some potential for housing in the future
  • An assessment to establish if the sites can be developed and delivered.

The SHLAA 2018 Report and SHLAA 2018 Annex are available to view.

The SHLAA 2019 is under preparation and will be published shortly. Sites submitted between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020 will be considered as part of SHLAA 2020, which will be published in due course. We are also starting to consider SHLAA 2021 and invite you to complete a Site Information Form if you want to tell us about a new site or changes to an existing site.

The deadline for new sites information for SHLAA 2021 is Wednesday 31 March 2021.
