Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment
Northumberland National Park Authority have worked with Northumberland County Council to produce a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) for the whole of the county of Northumberland.
The purpose of a SHLAA is to provide evidence that the Authority has identified future sources of land for housing by:
- Having identified potential sites for housing
- Assessed the site housing potential
- Assessed when they are likely to be developed.
This is in accordance with Planning Policy Statement 3: Housing (2006).
The SHLAA will form part of the evidence base, along with other information, to inform decisions in plan making including future allocations within Local Development Framework documents.
The SHLAA is not a policy document, therefore it does not mean that a site has been allocated for residential development and does not guarantee planning permission.
The SHLAA report can be found by following the links below;

The Northumberland Local Planning Authorities have agreed to work to a common methodology to undertake the SHLAAs.
This methodology can be viewed from the Northumberland Sub Regional SHLAA Draft Methodology link and reflects Government Guidance detailed in the SHLAA Practice Guide July 2007 and the North East England, Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment Regional Implementation Guide March 2008.
Please note that the deadline date for comments on the draft methodology has now closed.
SHLAA Consultation 13th May - 10th June, 2011
The consultation has now closed. Thank you for your responses, these were taken into account when preparing the final document.
The document will be kept under review and when appropriate a full review will take place, at which point we will call for any new sites to be submitted for consideration in the document.
You can still view the draft report which explains the site assessment process and presents initial summary findings from the assessments, the Naitonal Park Assessments can be found in appendix C, and a map showing the National Park assessments can be found here.
