2. Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)

The Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) is a catalogue of all the individual sites that have been assessed in relation to their development potential. 

Sites were submitted under the Call for Sites that took place in 2017 and 2018 for residential and employment sites, and more recently in 2021 for small residential sites and gypsy and traveller sites. The HELAA provides evidence for the Local Plan. 

We published the original HELAA (containing sites from the 2017 and 2018 Call for Sites) with our Part 2 Site Options consultation in June 2021.  This can be found in Section 4 “What we have previously consulted on”.

The Small Sites and Gypsy and Traveller Sites HELAA contains assessments of the sites submitted during the 2021 Call for Sites. It also contains re-assessed sites from the original HELAA that were not included as a site option in the Part 2 Local Plan and that met the criteria contained in the Small Sites HELAA Methodology.
