Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA)

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 the availability, suitability and achievability of land in the District for possible development. The assessment does not in itself determine whether a site should be allocated for development but is used to aid the Local Plan making process. The SHELAA is not a statement of Council planning policy.

SHELAA Report - August 2018

This report produces the site assessments for all sites submitted to the Council for consideration for development. Site summaries as well as the tables below are provided as background information to support the Wealden Local Plan Draft Proposed Submission Document. The main report and appendices are available to be downloaded below;
