Strategic Housing & Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and Green Land Availability Assessment (GLAA) – Call for Sites
Test Valley Borough Council 2022 Strategic Housing & Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and Green Land Availability Assessment (GLAA) – Call for Sites
Test Valley Borough Council is issuing a Call for Sites as part of its Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and Green Land Availability Assessment (GLAA).
As a requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework, the SHELAA is a technical document which provides information on sites for potential housing, economic development, Gypsy and Travelling Showpeople, Self-Build housing etc. in relation to their suitability, availability and achievability.
The GLAA allows the Council to continue to promote the conservation, restoration and enhancement of priority habitats and identify and pursue opportunities for securing measurable net gains for biodiversity in line with National Planning Policy among other ecological benefits.
The Council is undertaking this exercise in order to help inform future planning processes and will contribute to the preparation of the new Local Plan document for the Borough.
This is an opportunity for land owners to promote any new sites for consideration, and is not a review of existing SHELAA and GLAA sites; there is no requirement to resubmit sites those existing sites afresh; however if you wish to update any information of current SHELAA sites please contact the Planning Policy Team.
The SHELAA and GLAA only identify sites which have been promoted to the Council, it does not allocate sites. The inclusion of a site in the SHELAA or GLAA does not imply that the Council would necessarily grant planning permission.
All promoted sites will be made publically available. Individual personal details and land ownership details will be processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
With regards to residential and economic uses, the Council will accept sites for a net gain of 5 or more dwellings and sites that are 0.25ha (or likely to provide at least 500m² of economic floor space) and above.
The 4 week period will run from Monday 18 July 2022, the closing date for any submissions are Noon Monday 22 August 2022.
