Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment

The Darlington Housing Employment Land  Availability Assessment  2017 (HELAA 2017) assesses the suitability, availability and achievability of sites in the Borough to be considered for allocation in the Local Plan 2016-36.    

The process was previously known as the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), and has been renamed as the HELAA to reflect its consideration of employment sites alongside housing. All sites that were considered as part of the previous SHLAA (2015) were retained and carried forward into the HELAA to be considered in an up to date context.

For more information please click on the Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment theme page.
