Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), June 2008

Jointly produced by Malvern Hills District Council, Worcester City Council and Wychavon District Council,  June 2008.

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 is the first edition of the SHLAA document, further updates will be produced anually. The methodology used for the SHLAA process was produced in April 2007. The methodology included re-examining known sites (e.g. Local Plan omission sites); new sites put forward through invitation to parish councils, developers and landowners; and desktop studies of sites within/adjacent to settlements. In total 762 sites were considered.

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.
