Annual Housing Monitoring Update

The NPPF requires local planning authorities to set out a five year supply of specific deliverable sites for housing, including an appropriate buffer.  This assessment has been produced as a snapshot to identify the housing land supply situation within the Borough on the base date of 31 March 2017. We intend to continue to prepare annual updates as required by the PPG .

Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment 2012

The SHLAA is a key component of the evidence base to support the delivery of sufficient land for housing; to meet the community’s need for more homes; and to inform housing policy within the Cheshire East Local Plan. This assessment is required under the NPPF paragraph 59.

The SHLAA is a technical study to inform future policy development and it does not determine whether any site is acceptable for future housing development as that is determined through the Local Plan and / or any planning application submitted.

Further information about the SHLAA is available on the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment Frequently Asked Questions page.
