        Evidence Base for Potential Housing Sites

        The South East Plan required us to provide for at least 7,500 new homes in Thanet over the period 2006 to 2026.  On 13 December 2010 the Government’s Localism Bill signalled the intention to revoke that plan, and we will now need to address, through the planning process what provisions will be appropriate for Thanet. In preparing our Local Development Framework (LDF) we are assessing the potential of a pool of sites in the District to contribute to our housing land supply.  More information about this Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment is set out below.

        Sites submitted by developers and landowners

        Early in the Local Plan preparation process, we invited developers and landowners to supply details of any sites they believe have future development potential.

        In response, many sites have been drawn to our attention. The location of the sites submitted is shown on maps. There is also a list stating each site’s location and cross-referenced to the maps by a submission reference number. Some additional sites were submitted at the Preferred Options stage of the Local Plan. These can be viewed below.

        It is important to note that some submitted sites were put forward requesting allocation for purposes other than housing development.

        Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)

        This is the mechanism we are using to assess our pool of sites for their housing potential. (The pool includes the landowner/developer sites mentioned above). An earlier (2010) SHLAA has been superseded and the new SHLAA has a base date of 2013.

        The SHLAA results will provide the information needed to help us decide on the best sites to allocate for new homes.  Indications in the SHLAA that particular sites have housing potential do not mean that they will be allocated or will receive planning permission.  Those decisions will be taken through the formal planning process.

        The Council is open to receive any comments or additional relevant information on the content of the SHLAA. However, it must be borne in mind that it is essentially a technical assessment and not a policy document. We are not at this stage inviting details of further sites to include in the SHLAA.  (It remains open to anyone, however, to draw to our attention any site they feel should receive specific attention as part of the wider plan-making process).

        Planning process

        It is important to note that even if the SHLAA concludes that a particular site has potential to deliver housing, it will still be for the planning process to decide which sites are ultimately allocated for development and how the delivery of planned new homes should be managed.

        The Strategy for the Planned Location of Housing (PDF) sets out the Council’s proposed approach in identifying the most suitable sites.

        The draft Local Plan Preferred Options document shows sites proposed to be allocated for future housing.  A brief indicative note is provided outlining the reasons why other sites are not proposed for allocation.
