Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and Brownfield Land Register: Call for Sites

As part of the preparation of the 2018 SHELAA, the Council is undertaking, in accordance with government Planning Practice Guidance, a 'Call for Sites' exercise. The Call for Sites provides an opportunity for landowners, developers, agents, community organisations and other interested parties to propose sites for consideration in the SHELAA for potential housing and/or employment development.

The 2018 SHELAA will replace the 2017 Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and will inform the 2018 review of the Brownfield Land Register.

To be included in the SHELAA, sites must meet the following criteria as appropriate:
  • Housing proposals which could provide a minimum of 5 dwellings.
  • Employment sites which are at least 0.25 hectares in area or capable of accommodating 500m² of floorspace.

Please note: sites which were included in the 2017 SHLAA do not need to be resubmitted, unless site circumstances have changed significantly. The 2017 SHLAA can be downloaded here.

If you wish to suggest a site for inclusion in the SHELAA, and potentially the Brownfield Land Register, please complete a site submission form, which can be accessed via the link below:

All submissions should be accompanied by a location plan at 1:1250 or 1:2500 scale clearly showing the site boundaries.

Submissions can be made as follows:

Via email to:

In writing to: Planning Strategy Team, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Redcar & Cleveland House, Kirkleatham Street, Redcar, TS10 1RT.

The deadline for submitting sites to the 2018 review is Monday 16 April 2018.

Enquiries regarding any aspect of this process can be made to the Council's Planning Strategy Team on 01287 612356 or using the above mail and postal addresses.

It should be noted that the SHELAA is NOT a policy or decision-making document. It is a technical study to identify the potential for housing or employment development, and the inclusion of any site in the document does not mean that a site will make it into the Local Plan as a formal allocation, nor does it imply or guarantee that planning permission would be granted or recommended should a planning application be submitted.
