What’s this all about? Well, this is the Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) which will form part of the evidence in the new local plan. The issue of SHELAA will always, in my opinion, be contentious. It is worth noting that at this stage although the sites have been identified, it doesn’t mean that they will be approved for housing.
For Down Hall & Rawreth the sites are plentiful and we will be updating our residents on how to take part in the public consultation in the coming weeks. For now here is a map of the potential sites.
