Housing Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)

This report updates the latest potential housing and employment land availability set out in the Housing Employment Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) report 2023/2024. The HELAA assessment is updated and published each year following a call for sites, for the purposes of establishing a potential supply of land availability for plan making purposes only (i.e. the HELAA is a high-level assessment of potential land supply for plan making, not for Development Management purposes). Since 2023 the call for sites has included inviting land availability for Gypsy & Travellers, biodiversity net gain and nature recovery, blue/green infrastructure (opens space and landscape/water bodies), renewable energy (solar/wind wave etc.).
