Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment & Call for Sites
At this stage, no specific land is being suggested by the south Worcestershire Councils (Wychavon, Malvern Hills and Worcester City) for future housing and employment uses. However, the Councils will need to identify specific sites in the future. To the end, a ‘Call for Sites’ was carried out between May and July 2018, to ask landowners to put forward land they have that they wish to make available for future development. These sites will be assessed by the Councils for their suitability / availability / and whether they can be delivered in the plan period, as part of a Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA). This will provide the SWC with evidence which will inform the deliverability of potential spatial development options which will then be set out in the Preferred Options that will be consulted upon in November 2019.
To view the sites that have been suggested but not yet assessed, please follow the link below to the Interactive Policies Map where there is a mapping layer at the top of the legend, called Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment.
