How we identify land with potential for future housing development

A Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a process that identifies land with potential for future housing development. All local planning authorities are expected to undertake a SHLAA. We do this to help identify an acceptable supply of land for housing as part of preparing the Local Plan. The inclusion of a site within the SHLAA does not imply support for development. It is the Council’s Local Plan as well as national planning policy which will determine suitability for development.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local planning authorities to assess the need for housing in their area. Associated planning policy guidance sets out expectations for the required evidence. The Strategic Housing Market Assessment provides that evidence and meets the requirements of guidance.
