HELAA, Brownfield Land & Self Build Registers

 

The Housing & Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) is one of several technical reports that the Council is required to produce to underpin the Local Plan and other documents such as the Non-Strategic Site Allocation Development Plan Document (DPD).

The HELAA is a technical and theoretical assessment of sites which could potentially contribute towards the future supply of housing and employment land within the Local Planning Authority Area (LPAA). As a consequence, the HELAA does not set policy, but provides background evidence on the potential availability of sites.

The identification of sites in the HELAA should not be seen as an intention to allocate these sites for development, or that planning permission will be granted.

A review of the HELAA was undertaken in 2018 (the results of which can be seen below). However, the Council is required to keep the assessment under review, and is currently examining the information contained within it.

 

Call For Sites

The Council undertakes a general ‘call for sites’ each year for sites within the District that can accommodate 5 or more additional dwellings. In addition to this consultation, the Council always welcomes the submission of sites for inclusion within the HELAA at any time of the year.

The council will also annually ask all those who have previously had some involvement with land within the existing HELAA, to review their site information and provide the Council with an update of any relevant information, which could update the Council’s records and helps the Council assess whether a site could be considered Deliverable i.e. achievable and available. The Council is particularly interested to know if they are planning to develop the site within the next 5 years or in the longer term (6-10, 11-15 or 16+ years).

If you would like to submit a site for inclusion within the HELAA, which also includes sites for Employment use, Gypsy and Traveler sites, please use the forms and guidance provided below (Please note that the General Data Protection Regulation requires that this authority must only collect and retain personal data with express consent from you for the specific purpose(s) of carrying out its duties. Therefore, please read and sign up to the Privacy Notice provided below)

HELAA 2018

The HELAA has been prepared in both report and interactive mapping formats:

 

Following Planning Policy Sub Committee on 05/12/2018 a number of amendments have been made to the HELAA to take into account two sites which were omitted.

The sites are referenced 18K1 Land to the East of Kingston Lane (south) East Preston and 18LU9 Land at Meadview Nursery Lyminster.

The updates that have been made are as follows:

The HELAA 2018 has been republished with a minor update in February 2019 to include further details on Potential Employment Sites (p.41)/Appendix 4.3 and the assessment proforma pdfs have been updated for the strategic allocation sites (without planning permission) to coincide with the predicted build out rates on the updated Housing Trajectory (Appendix 7 of the AMR).

Small amendments have been made to the deliverable and developable  summary tables and figures in order for them all to tally, in accordance with all the post committee amendments/factual corrections.

Interactive map

The interactive map is a useful way to quickly gain information related to a specific site. However, you are recommended to view the  HELAA Guidance Notes for interactive map 2018.pdf [pdf] 664KB  prior to viewing the map.

Important note

Although it will be possible for sites to continue to be submitted after this time, they may not be able to inform the HELAA update 2018. They will however be considered in future updates.

Brownfield Land Register

The Council is legally required to maintain a Brownfield Land Register of previously developed sites within the District which are capable of being redeveloped or converted to provide housing-led development.

All sites must meet the definition of 'previously developed land' contained in the National Planning Policy Framework - on the GOV.UK website.

All sites must also meet the following criteria:

  • they should be suitable for residential development: this means the land has planning permission for housing or housing-led development; or has been allocated for such development in a Local Plan; or is considered appropriate for such development by the Council
  • they should be available for residential development: this means that there is no impediment to development in terms of either ownership issues or legal constraints on the land
  • residential development of the land is achievable: the land is likely to be developed within 15 years of being entered on the register

The Brownfield Land Register must include all sites meeting these criteria which are at least 0.25 hectares in area, or are capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings.

Brownfield Land Registers have two parts.  Part 1 is a list of sites meeting the criteria within the Brownfield Land Register Regulations 2017 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017/403/contents/made). The Council then has the power to grant brownfield sites Permission in Principle (PIP), a new stepping stone towards planning permission, by including them in Part 2 of the Register.  The Council currently has no plans to grant Permission in Principle at this stage, so applicable sites will be set out in Part 1 only. 

Our register is an Excel spreadsheet, arranged and populated in accordance with the Government's published Data Standard - on the GOV.UK website. It includes links to the Council’s mapping system and planning application details in the ‘SitePlanURL’ column.

The Brownfield Land Register must be published before the end of December 2017 and reviewed annually.

To submit a site for consideration on the Brownfield Land Register, you will need to provide a map, outline plan of the site or aerial photograph clearly showing the site’s boundaries and as much detail as possible about the site. These details should be sent to localplan@arun.gov.uk  This will ensure that a thorough assessment can be provided as to both site suitability and availability for development. If you would like to provide us with an update on a site already included in the register or if the boundary has changed, please provide an up-to-date map and a brief explanation of any amendments as relevant. If the site is no longer available, please let us know so that we can remove it from the Register.

Registers of Brownfield Land are public documents and therefore details submitted for inclusion in it can be treated as public information.

 

Local Self Build Register
