Housing and economic land availability assessment

The council has prepared the Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) 2021. This assessment is to identify and assess sites that may have potential to accommodate future housing and economic development.

The HELAA forms a key component of the evidence base that will inform the Chichester Local Plan Review. 

The purpose of the HELAA is to identify a future supply of land which is suitable, available and achievable for housing and economic development (such as employment, retail and leisure) over the plan period up to 2037. It is a technical study which replaces the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and Employment Land Review. Previous SHLAA documents are also available to view.

The HELAA is a technical study and not a policy document. The council's assessment of the deliverability and developability of sites for housing or economic development through the HELAA process does not indicate that it will be allocated in the Chichester Local Plan Review or imply that the council will grant planning permission for any specific development proposal in the future.
