Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), December 2012

Jointly produced by Malvern Hills District Council, Worcester City Council and Wychavon District Council, December 2012

The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a joint report produced by the three South Worcestershire Local Authorities of Malvern Hills District Council, Worcester City Council and Wychavon District Council.

This document represents the 4th edition of the SHLAA document, following annual updates. It effectively takes account of new and amended sites that were submitted during 2011. Since 2007, the original methodology has been reviewed to accord with updated government guidance. The role of the SHLAA is to identify whether sites have potential for housing, assess the housing potential and determine when they are likely to be deliverable. The SHLAA has been prepared in tandem with the identification of potential housing allocations through the SWDP Preferred Options and the Significant Changes document. It will inform the preparation of the pre-submission draft SWDP.

Please note that each map shows all of the sites that have been identified in or adjacent the stated settlement, the detailed panel results behind each map only provide the results for the sites that went through the panel process. Therefore, in some cases, the number of sites identified on the maps does not match the number of sites considered through the panel process. Some sites will have already been ruled out at an earlier stage, for example for sites designated as open space (PPG17), where there has been duplication or there is a flood risk.
