Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)

Councils across Coventry and Warwickshire work closely together to plan for housing and employment needs. Each Local Authority has a Local Plan which sets out a required amount of growth for its area.
 In delivering sufficient housing and employment land to meet identified requirements it is important that each Local Authority keeps an up to date database of sites, which it needs to assess to see if they are suitable, available and can realistically be delivered to meet the needs of the area. This is known as the Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (HELAA).

It is essential that when Local Authorities look at the detail of how they plan for growth, they do it in line with a common methodology to ensure consistency of approach and understanding. 

The draft methodology has been drafted by Coventry and Warwickshire Local Planning Authorities to ensure that sites are being assessed within a common framework which accords with the most up to date National Planning Policy and guidance. The Local Authorities involved are: Coventry City Council, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Stratford on Avon District Council, Warwick District Council, North Warwickshire Borough Council and Rugby Borough Council.
