The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is an annual assessment of land suitable for residential development that the Council expects to deliver housing over the next 15 years or more. A 5 year land supply position is the supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide 5 years’ worth of housing (and appropriate buffer) against our housing requirement. The Council can demonstrate a supply of specific, deliverable sites for housing equivalent to 8.7 years supply.
