The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is an annual review of potential housing sites. Its purpose is to help us understand where and when housing could be built in the future.
Sites are assessed against a range of criteria to establish their suitability, availability and achievability for development. The results of the assessment feed into other work that we do.

The assessment includes land that has come forward from a range of sources, including sites that have already been granted planning permission and sites that have been put forward by landowners and developers.
It is important to note that inclusion in the SHLAA process does not in itself allow for development to occur on site and that planning permission must still be granted. Some of the sites in the assessment can only come forward if planning policy is changed. Decisions to change planning policy are taken through the Emerging Local Plan process and will be subject to widespread public consultation.

In order to increase the number of houses built the Government requires local authorities to prepare and maintain a register of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development.
The Brownfield Land Register is in two Parts:-
1) Part 1 is a list of all brownfield sites appropriate for residential development, regardless of their status
2) Part 2 includes those sites in Part 1 that the Council considers would be suitable for a grant of 'permission in principle'.
The Government has published guidance to assist with the preparation and publishing of the brownfield land registers and information about permission in principle, as follows:-
