The Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) is an essential piece of evidence which is required to support the local plan process. It is a technical assessment which considers sites for housing and economic (for example retail, leisure, cultural, office, warehousing) development in the West Suffolk area over the plan period. The results of the SHELAA will inform the West Suffolk Local Plan preparation.
A SHELAA should:
- identify sites and broad locations with the potential for development
- assess their development potential, and
- assess their suitability for development and the likelihood of development coming forward (the availability and achievability).
