This ‘Call for Sites’ will inform the preparation of the Winchester District Local Plan Review Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA). This is a requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework.

The SHELAA will be a technical document that will form part of the evidence base and provide information on sites for potential housing, economic development, retail and leisure, Gypsy and Travelling Showpeople, Self Build housing etc in relation to their suitability, availability and achievability.

The reasons for undertaking this exercise are:

  1. The data will help to inform the preparation of future planning documents i.e. Local Plan, SPD and Neighbourhood Plans
  2. The information submitted as part of the Call for Sites will also help to identify Brownfield Sites to be included on the ‘Brownfield Register’ which the Council must prepare and publish
  3. The SHELAA will also provide the basis for calculating the five year land supply position.

The Council is therefore asking landowners and agents who wish to promote land for housing and/or economic development, retail, leisure, self build and Gypsy and Travelling Showpeople sites to submit information to us on sites they would like to be assessed.

The Council will accept sites for a net gain of 5 or more dwellings and sites that are 0.25ha (or likely to provide at least 500m² of economic floor space) and above.

If you would like to have your site included in the Council’s Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA), and if applicable the Brownfield Register then please complete the SHELAA / Brownfield Call for Sites Submission Form and return it to us by 6th April 2018 using the following methods:

  • Online (Preferred)
  • Email: SHELAA@winchester.gov.uk
  • Post: Strategic Planning, Winchester City Council, City Offices, Colebrook Street, Winchester, SO23 9LJ

Please attach an up-to-date Ordnance Survey based map outlining the precise boundaries of the site in its entirety and the part which may be suitable for development (if this is less that the whole). Without this mapped information we are unable to consider the site.
