Strategic Housing & Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA)

The National Planning Policy Framework requires local planning authorities to annually update a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide 5 years worth of housing against their assessed  housing requirements. A further supply of specific developable sites or broad locations for growth should also be identified for years 6-10 of the Plan and where possible years 11-15.  This is done through a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA).  The SHLAA covers development land across the District outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It informs the delivery of the Local Plan 2012-2028 targets.  The assessment provides evidence on the availability of land for housing development in the plan area.  A site's inclusion in the SHLAA does not indicate that planning permission will be granted for housing development. Planning proposals will be judged on their merits against the Local Plan policies unless material considerations indicate otherwise.

The SHLAA is updated on an annual basis. Sites can be submitted at any time and will be considered within the next update. Further information on submitting a site is available from the Call for Sites page.

SHLAA sites can be searched for using the following interactive map by typing a neighbouring property name, street name or postcode in to the search bar. Alternatively the zoom in and out tool can be used.
