Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)

Local Planning Authorities are required under national planning policy to carry out a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA).

The SHLAA is an audit of available land for potential housing development, acting as a key evidence base to support the delivery of sufficient land for housing.

We published our first SHLAA in March 2010 to support the Black Country Core Strategy (adopted February 2011). As required by the National Planning Policy Framework, the SHLAA is not a static document and needs updating periodically, to inform the Borough’s housing land supply and trajectory. A copy of Dudley’s SHLAA update for monitoring year 2020/2021 (1st April 2020-31st March 2021) is available to view and download below.

The 2020/2021 SHLAA was updated whilst Dudley was part of the Black Country Plan. 

The SHLAA provides an important evidence base for emerging documents within the Council’s Local Plan.
