Record details

About this page

Harborough District Council has updated its assessment of potential new housing sites in the district. This Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) 2015 Update replaces the previous 2014 SHLAA.

The SHLAA 2015 Update presents the results of an objective assessment of potential housing sites submitted to the council during the 'call for sites' in February 2015 together with sites from the previous SHLAA. It assesses the potential of sites within or adjacent to the District's most sustainable settlements to deliver housing over the next 0 to 5 years, 6 to 10 years, 11 to 15 years and 16 plus years.

The SHLAA is technical evidence which, together with other evidence documents, will be used to help identify potential strategic allocations as part of the new Local Plan. It is important to note that the assessment maps within the SHLAA 2015 Update do not allocate sites or represent council policy relating to the location of housing.

Harborough District Council routinely updates the SHLAA and therefore continually accepts sites for future assessment. To make new sites known to us please submit full details using the proforma.
