DLP Planning Ltd (DLP) are pleased to announce that we have been appointed by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to undertake a Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA). The commission builds upon DLP’s existing experience working with Local Authorities in the preparation and assessment of a variety of evidence base documents which inform the development of emerging local plans.
The study will provide a robust assessment of available housing and employment sites in the Borough by looking at the availability, suitability and achievability of land for possible development. The assessment will form a key part of the evidence base supporting the preparation of the new Southend Local Plan.
DLP are looking forward to working with Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to update this key evidence base document.
