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:

SLAA 2018

The 2018 Strategic Land Availability Assessment (SLAA) is now available to view below.  This evidence has informed the Issues and Options that are currently being consulted on.  The SLAA is a live document, therefore will be regularly reviewed.  Whilst the appendices within the document identify the sites that we have assessed, the accompanying site assessments will be available to view on request from the Strategic Planning Team.

Since the initial publication of the draft report, several amendments have been made to take account of any updates and to increase land supply in the Borough, therefore the report has now been finalised.
