Housing Land Availability

Joint Housing Land Availability Study

The Studies are part of the evidence base for Local Development Plans. The Studies:

  • Provide a statement of housing land availability for development planning and management; and
  • Where an insufficient supply is identified, outline what the local planning authority is doing to address the shortfall.

The Studies also provide information on:

  • Housing completions;
  • Land availability on previously developed land; and
  • Land availability on sites subject to flood risk.
