Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment

Housing Delivery Action Plan

The Council has prepared a Housing Delivery Action Plan 2019 (PDF, 5MB) which provides an overview of housing delivery in the city, assesses the main barriers and constraints to housing delivery, and sets out actions which the Council is undertaking to help improve delivery in the future.



The primary role of the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is to identify sites with potential for housing development, assess their housing potential and estimate when they are likely to be developed. Although the assessment is an important evidence source to inform plan-making, it does not, in itself, determine whether a site should be allocated for housing development.
