Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA)
We are currently undertaking a Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) for the district. The methodology updates the 2015 Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) methodology and provides the framework through which the deliverability of sites will be assessed. Unlike the SHLAA the SHELAA also contains an assessment on employment land delivery combining the assessment of housing and employment land in the district for the first time.
