Strategic housing and employment land availability
The Strategic Housing & Employment Availability Assessment (2017) (PDF File, 1,048kb) (SHELA) identifies and assesses potential sites for new housing and employment development. As a result it is an important element of the evidence base informing our plan review process.
The study itself does not, however, decide policy or which sites should or should not be developed, as these decisions will be made through the local development framework process. The assessments have been undertaken in line with the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment Methodology (PDF File, 1,029kb)
Please note that the additional sites in the Strategic Housing & Employment Availability Assessment - Addendum (2017) (PDF File, 434kb) are in Bilsthorpe, Collingham and South Scarle. See Figure 1 for a plan showing the sub-areas.
This exercise was first carried out as a strategic housing land availability assessment in 2010.
