Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local planning authorities to produce a Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA).
The SHELAA (2020) sets out the long list of sites which were nominated to the Council. These sites do not have any planning status. Including them in the SHELAA does not mean that they will be developed in the future.

- Appendix 2 - Employment Sites
- Appendix 3 - Excluded Sites

Call for Sites
The council operates a 'rolling' call for sites, so landowners/developers and agents can submit sites to us at any time.
Work has commenced on the preparation of the Site Allocations Document and will be submitted for Examination in Autumn 2020. Sites can be submitted to the current Regulation 19 consultation to be considered by the Planning Inspector during the Examination process. Further information can be found on our Development Plan Documents page.
The next opportunity to promotes site will be during a call for sites for the District Plan Review which will be taking place 2020/21.
