NODISC - CDC Planning Focus Newsletter July 2011
The July 2011 issue of CDC's Planning Focus newsletter can be downloaded here.

It states that the SHELAA (land availability) review is taking place - identifying land available for development and contacting land owners to find out "if the land is available and when it could be deliverable for development".

The original 2008 draft of the SHELAA and CDC's Growth Point bid to Leeds City Region prompted the formation of NODISC and the 500 strong protest at South Craven School that was covered by Calendar News.

If you're interested in protecting our green field sites please download and read the newsletter, which also contains comments about the Localism Bill and the public village meetings that have been arranged.

Liz Kildunne noticed that in the SHELAA news update the word 'public consultation' is absent and queried this with CDC. The response is below...

The sites which are included in the SHLAA will be taken to public consultation.

The stage which is mentioned in the newsletter regarding the contacting of landowners and agents is in order for the Council to ascertain whether the sites contained in the SHLAA are available for development. This is being carried out as it has been some time since the previous draft SHELAA was produced in 2008 and we want to check whether any circumstances have changed, in terms of for example ownership. The next stage following this gathering of additional information will be to take the SHLAA to public consultation.

As you are on our consultation database, you will be informed of when the next consultation is going to take place.

Note that SHELAA (Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment) has morphed into SHLAA (Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment).
