Housing monitoring

How is housing development monitored in the East Riding?

Housing development, and the land available for new housing, is monitored annually through the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). Some of the data used in the SHLAA also informs the Annual Monitoring Report.

Does the council have a 5-year supply of deliverable housing sites?

Yes. The council is able to demonstrate a supply of deliverable sites equivalent to 6.2 years. This requirement is in accordance with the National Planing Policy Framework, which requires local planning authorities to :

"...identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their housing requirements with an additional buffer of 5% (moved forward from later in the plan period) to ensure choice and competition in the market for land. Where there has been a record of persistent under delivery of housing, local planning authorities should increase the buffer to 20% (moved forward from later in the plan period) to provide a realistic prospect of achieving the planned supply and to ensure choice and competition in the market for land;" (paragraph 47, NPPF)

Further details are set out in the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) (2015) - see below.

What is the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)?

The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, or SHLAA, is an extensive survey of existing and potential housing sites in the East Riding. It forms part of the evidence base for the Local Plan, particularly the Strategy Documentand the Allocations Document.

Please note: that the SHLAA does not allocate sites for development, nor does it create new policy.

Its purpose is to assess the potential supply of housing land to meet a 5 year supply of housing. It does this by considering how much housing is likely to come forward in the next 5 years and whether or not this is likely to be sufficient to meet the needs of the East Riding.

The SHLAA also provides a brief assessment of sites which could be delivered over the longer term. However, for sites to be included in a Local Plan, they would be subject to public consultation and further assessment.

Can I view the latest Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) online?

The latest SHLAA, showing the position at April 2015, is available to view below and sets out:

  • What the previous levels of housing development have been
  • What the future requirement for housing is
  • How the assessed sites were identified
  • How the sites were assessed
  • The existing supply of housing land
  • The future supply of housing

It sets out the position as at April 2015 and incorporates an assessment of those sites identified in the Local Plan.

Appendix B – Settlement maps and site assessments

Appendix B provides details on all the sites assessed as part of the SHLAA report. These are set out in the table below:

Which settlements and sites are included in the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)?

The settlements selected for consideration in the SHLAA are identified in the Local Plan (Strategy Document) as suitable locations for some form of housing development. The SHLAA also details large sites (5 or more dwellings) with planning permission in other settlements.

See pages 17-19 of the SHLAA report 2015 below.

The sites identified in the SHLAA have been assessed against a number of criteria to establish whether they are: suitable, available and achievable.

Will the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) be updated?

Yes. The SHLAA is updated annually. The next update will provide the housing and land supply position as of 1st April 2016.

What is the Brownfield Register?

A Brownfield Register is a schedule of brownfield sites (or 'previously developed land') that are suitable for housing. The council is one of a number of pilot authorities selected to prepare a Brownfield Register. To be considered for inclusion on the Register, sites must meet the following criteria:

  • Available - sites should be deliverable or developable. Deliverable sites are those that offer a suitable location for housing now, and offer a realistic prospect of being under construction in the next five years. Developable sites are those sites likely to come forward later on (e.g. between six to ten years).
  • Capable of supporting five or more dwellings or more than 0.25 hectares in size.
  • Capable of development - sites should be free from constraints or, where there are constraints, these can be suitably mitigated.

The Register includes sites with and without planning permission, and is largely informed by the SHLAA (see above). The Register is presented in two different formats below, and is accompanied by a series of maps identifying their extents and locations. An ESRI 'shapefile' is available for viewing the sites in GIS programmes (e.g. ESRI ArcMap).

During the pilot phase, a number of sites were submitted to us for inclusion in the Register. Some of these were rejected on the basis that they do not meet the criteria. The spreadsheet below lists these sites and the reason(s) for their exclusion from the Register.

Can I submit a site for inclusion in the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and Brownfield Register?

Yes. You can submit a site for inclusion in the SHLAA using the contact details below. If your site is a suitable brownfield site, it will automatically be added to the Brownfield Register in future versions. When submitting a site, please include an address and a map of the suitable scale showing its location and extent, as well as the current/former use for brownfield sites. The SHLAA and Brownfield Register will be published annually.
