The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a document that indicates how much land might potentially be available for housing in the future across West Lancashire. It is an important part of the background information for our Local Plan.
As from 2017, the SHLAA has been replaced with the 'SHELAA' (Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment), which looks at both housing and employment land.
The 2016 West Lancashire SHLAA update reflects the position at 1 April 2016. Please note the April 2016 housing land supply position is set out in detail in the Council's 2016 Annual Monitoring Report (AMR).
