Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)

Preparation of a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). SHLAA is a technical study to inform planning policy development and implementation. It is not the purpose of the SHLAA to allocate land for development; this is undertaken through the preparation of a Local Plan. SHLAA also sets out whether there is a deliverable supply of housing land for five year’s worth of housing, known as the five year housing land supply.

The recent SHLAA has been prepared with involvement of agents, landowners and promoters of sites to comment
upon the availability and achievability of each site as part of a positive approach to update the SHLAA.

Suggestions for New Sites
Any person can make a suggestion for a new SHLAA site, not just landowners and their agents. A guidance note and submission form can be downloaded the documents section below, to help make site suggestions. A suggestion can be made at any time of year, but the site will not be added to the published SHLAA until the annual update takes place to the next 1st April base date.

SHLAA and Neighbourhood Planning
The SHLAA provides a source of information about potential housing land for those engaged in Neighbourhood Planning to draw upon for their local neighbourhood plans.  However, if neighbourhood forums or Parish Councils consider that other pieces of land would be appropriate for housing development, such land can still be suggested and included through one of the SHLAA annual updates.
