Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment & Brownfield Land Register

Closes 14 Aug 2017

Opened 3 Jul 2017



Any sites that are submitted using this form will be considered for inclusion in the Council’s Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) in accordance with the agreed Leicester and Leicestershire Joint Methodology

If the site is on previously developed land (as defined in the National Planning Policy Framework), and the proposal is housing-led, it will also automatically be considered for inclusion in Part 1 of the Council’s Brownfield Land Register in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017

Submitted sites must be able to meet the following criteria:

  • Residential development: at least 0.25ha or capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings
  • Economic development: 500sq m of net additional floorspace or a minimum site size of 0.25ha

It is important to note that the SHELAA and Brownfield Land Register are not policy documents, they are technical documents which consider potential capacity; they do not make decisions or recommendations on which sites should be allocated for development or granted planning permission.

Please complete all fields in the form as best you can.  If something is unknown, then leave it blank.  You will need to use a separate form for each site submitted, including a site plan for each one (1:2500 or 1:1250 scale) with the boundaries of the site clearly marked in red.

Completed forms should be received by the Council no later than Monday 14 August 2017.
