We recently submitted our Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) to Horsham District Council for the scheme, identifying how the land represents a suitable and deliverable site that could not only form part of the Council’s strategic land supply but importantly provide part of the Council’s 5-year land supply.
Due to the location of the site, it also has the potential to represent a unique opportunity to improve the accessibility for the whole village, opening up previously inaccessible land and creating a rural heart to the village with the possibility for improved infrastructure, benefiting public transport routes and pedestrian safety.
Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)?
The SHLAA forms a key part of the evidence base for developing a Local Plan, and seeks to support the delivery of sufficient land for housing. It helps local councils to identify sites with potential for development to meet the needs of the community for more homes.
The SHLAA will establish realistic assumptions about the availability, suitability and the likely economic viability of land to meet the identified need for housing over the plan period. However it is worth remembering that the SHLAA alone will not determine whether planning permission should be granted to a particular site.
How Plainview Planning add value:
Plainview Planning specialise in promoting land into emerging Local Plans or Site Allocation DPDs. We add value by coordinating your promotion efforts to make sure that the Council is provided with persuasive documentation about your site, and that the right groups are lobbied at the right time to maximise chances of inclusion.
We monitor the status of Local Plans throughout the country and are well placed to guide you through the administrative and political process.
Our experience with land promotion projects is wide ranging and we have worked on many schemes including sites in Burnham, Dover, Tewkesbury, Wincanton and North Fambridge. (Read more!)
