Call for sites with potential for development

Published Monday 29 March 2021

Landowners, developers, site promoters and property agents are being encouraged to come forward if they have land which could be suitable for development.

The Call for Sites, launched by Harborough District Council, is an opportunity to submit sites within the Harborough district which are considered to have potential for development.

Site inspectionSites received through the Call for Sites will be assessed as part of a new Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA). The assessment of sites does not change their planning status, but it helps the Council in understanding the development potential of land across the district to meet expected future development needs.

The Council is inviting the submission of potential sites for a wide range of uses including garden villages or new settlements, strategic development areas, housing, employment, and retail. 

Further information about the Call for Sites, including a link to the online site submission form, is on the Council’s website at  

The closing date for the submission of sites is Friday 4 June 2021.

It is important to note that previously submitted or assessed sites will not be carried forward into the new assessment. All sites will need to be submitted via the new online form.
