Strategic Land Availability Assessment - Call for Brownfield Sites

The Council has issued a call for brownfield sites as part of its Strategic Land Availability Assessment (SLAA) and future brownfield site register. The call for brownfield sites is an opportunity for individuals and landowners to suggest brownfield land and sites for consideration within the SLAA, which is used to support the preparation of the Council's Local Plan.

To be eligible for consideration sites should:

  • be capable of accommodating five homes or more or 500sqm of floorspace, or

  • be at least 0.25ha in area.

Brownfield sites are those which have already been built on and either currently contain buildings and/or structures, or have done so in the recent past. Brownfield sites do not include those that contain agricultural buildings, certain mineral extraction or waste disposal sites, or those where the previous development is so historic that its remains have blended into the landscape. The detailed definition can be found in Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework, under the heading 'Previously Developed Land'.

The SLAA is a technical assessment which is designed to see if land in the area might be available for development for a range of different uses. The SLAA does not allocate land for development.

Land and sites within the Council's Plan Area (New Forest District outside the National Park - you can check the boundary here) can be suggested by completing a site submission form.
