Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local authorities to produce a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). The SHLAA is a technical review of potential housing sites, and it:
- identifies planning constraints (for example flood risk, Green Belt);
- considers whether a site is suitable, available, achievable and deliverable; and
- the potential number of houses that the site could accommodate.
As a background document it helps inform the plan making process but it does not allocate sites for development.
Our interactive mapping system shows all of the sites included in the assessment.
We review the SHLAA annually.
Alternatively you can send the form by post to: Planning Policy, Rushcliffe Borough Council, Rushcliffe Arena, Rugby Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 7YG.
A detailed Joint SHLAA Methodology Report - Nov 2022 has been agreed with the other Greater Nottingham Councils to ensure a consistent approach and to clearly justify any assumptions used. The SHLAA methodology is being used to prepare the SHLAA 2022 update.
