Evidence base


Some of the housing evidence and an explanation of the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is available on the West Northamptonshire Joint Planning Unit website.

This is an essential piece of evidence which is required to support the Local Plan process. It is an update and addition to the SHLAA and is a technical assessment which considers the availability, suitability and achievability of land in the District for possible development. The assessment does not in itself determine whether a site should be allocated for development but is used to aid the Local Plan making process. The SHLAA is not a statement of Council planning policy.
