Strategic Land Availability Assessment - SLAA

Previously known as the SHLAA

Council's are required to prepare a Strategic Land Availability Assessment (SLAA) in order to have a good understanding of which land in the Borough may be available and suitable to help meet its identified development needs.  The SLAA will inform the review of our Local Plan. 

SLAA methodology

The Council prepared and consulted on a joint draft SLAA methodology in partnership with Runnymede Borough Council.  A final version of the SLAA methodology and a table of the representations received on the draft and how these have been taken into account can be seen below:

Draft SLAA 2018

The 2018 Draft Strategic Land Availability Assessment is now available to view below.  This evidence will inform the Issues and Options that will be subject to public consultation in late April 2018.  The SLAA is in draft form and is a live document, therefore is subject to ongoing review.  Whilst the appendices within the document identify the sites we have assessed, the accompanying site assessments will be available to view on request from the Strategic Planning Team.
