As part of the evidence base for the preparation of a Local Plan, the council has undertaken a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). It assesses potential housing sites across Kirklees. The Local Plan will determine which sites are allocated for housing.
The inclusion of land within SHLAA does not in any way change its planning status and all applications for planning permission will be considered in terms of the policies relevant at the time of the application. The SHLAA also includes lists of sites with planning permission for new homes.
