The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) considers the amount of land that is available for housing development, with particular emphasis on demonstrating that there is sufficient land available to meet future housing targets.
The inclusion of a site in the SHLAA does not guarantee that planning permission for development will be forthcoming there, nor does the exclusion of a site from the SHLAA imply that a site cannot be developed.
Sites included in the SHLAA have been promoted by landowners and others for the Council to consider. They are not Council proposals. The Council has assessed each of the sites in the SHLAA to determine whether they are suitable, available and achievable for development. The formal process for choosing which of these sites are allocated for development is the Local Plan.
SHLAA Updates can be found below.
It has come to light that one site (Site 50, Land north of Lower Road, Breachwood Green, King's Walden) was accidentally omitted from the 2011 SHLAA. The correction paper below should therefore be read alongside the original document.
