The SHLAA is a technical document identifying
land that might have potential for housing at some stage in the
future, as required by the National Planning Policy Framework
(NPPF). This states that a housing assessment should be used to
establish realistic assumptions about the suitability, availability
and the likely achievability (economic viability) of land to meet
the identified housing need. This then determines whether a site
could form part of the housing land supply and, if so, when it is
expected to be developed.
As well as providing evidence for the housing land position, it will inform the review of the GMSF and Local Plan and provide data for the Brownfield Land Register. The base date of this SHLAA is the 1st April 2019 The last full SHLAA was carried out in 2018 and is reviewed annually, in line with monitoring of the wider Local Plan.
The SHLAA also discusses the latest housing requirements and whether we can demonstrate that there is enough land in the five year housing land supply to meet these requirements.
