Housing and economic land availability assessment 2019 to 2037

Paragraph 67 of the February 2019 National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) states that strategic policy-making authorities should have a clear understanding of the land available in their area through the preparation of a strategic housing land availability assessment (SHLAA) and identify a sufficient supply and mix of sites, taking into account their availability, suitability and likely economic viability. Further to this, paragraph 001 of national planning practice guidance states that plan-making authorities may carry out land availability assessments for housing and economic development as part of the same exercise, in order that sites may be identified for the use(s) which is most appropriate.

Having regard to the above Salford City Council has produced a combined housing and economic land availability assessment (HELAA); the economic uses considered in it are offices and industry/warehousing. This assessment identifies the potential future supply of housing and economic uses between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2037. It is part of the evidence base for the council’s local plan and the Greater Manchester spatial framework.

The HELAA report and annexes are available to download below.  

The sites that were considered as part of the assessment can be viewed on an interactive map. Ward plans showing sites considered as part of the assessment are also available to download

The supply of new housing identified in the HELAA has informed the five-year housing land supply position covering the period between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2024.
