Land Availability Assessment (LAA) and 2017 addendum

Which replaces the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)

Our Land Availability Assessment (LAA) 2016 was published in May 2016

The LAA:

  • identifies land with potential for development for housing and employment uses
  • assesses the land's potential capacity
  • assesses when a site is likely to be developed

The LAA replaces the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) 2014.

The 2017 LAA Addendum sits alongside the LAA and supersedes some parts of it. It includes new sites and updates the capacity and phasing of a number of the sites within the LAA. It also removes sites that are no longer available for future development, for example if they now have planning permission. The Addendum also provides an updated Housing Trajectory and updated five-year housing land supply as at 1st April 2017.

You are able to view a hard copy of the LAA at our main reception.
