Strategic Assessment of Land Availability (SALA)
The National Planning Practice Guidance (2014) requires authorities to consider capacity within their areas with regard to the availability of land to accommodate housing and employment development. These studies have now superseded the former Strategic Housing/Employment Land Availability Assessments (SHLAAs and SELAA‘s).
A Strategic Assessment of Land Availability (SALA) does not determine or make recommendations as to whether a particular site should be allocated for housing or employment purposes, nor does it determine whether planning permission should be granted, these matters are for statutory plan and decision making processes.
Should you wish to submit a site for consideration for the next SALA review please
complete the proforma. The SALA panel are due to meet next in January 2018.
