Land Availability Assessment

The Land Availability Assessment (LAA) helps identify sites we can use for the following:

  • housing
  • economic development

The sites can be used over the next 15 years. The LAA assesses the suitability, availability, and achievability of each site, including:

  • how much development could take place
  • how likely we are to use the site for development

The document includes:

  • a list of all sites or locations considered, cross-referenced to their locations on maps
  • a guideline for how many homes we expect will be built in each year of the Local Plan period
  • a plan of each site showing their boundary
