The main purpose of the Assessment is to identify potential sites for housing. The SHLAA does not allocate land for development but merely identifies the availability of land in our District that could be used for housing developments. The information that is gathered during this process will be used to inform our Local Plan. The Council is in the process of updating the SHLAA assessments in line with the renewed 2015 LAA methodology. A list of all SHLAA sites at June 2016 can be downloaded here.
