Strategic housing land availability assessment

Suitable land available for housing?

The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is an assessment of how many units can be accommodated on identified sites and the timeframes for when these sites are likely to be available. The exercise also identifies constraints associated with bringing potential sites forward and how and when these can be removed to help improve the potential for housing.

The SHLAA does not in itself determine whether a site should be allocated for housing and a site's inclusion in the SHLAA does not imply a site will be allocated for housing or that alternative uses should not be considered.
