The register will help the Council gauge the demand for self and custom build homes within the district. Registration does not however guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available.

To be included on the register please complete the online form:

Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA)

Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) 2016
The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a technical study which will inform the preparation of the Hart District Local Plan. Its purpose is to assess the amount of land available for housing development in the district. It is important to note that although the SHLAA is an important source of evidence to inform plan making, it does not make decisions about the future of sites. It is the development plan (the Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plans) which will determine which of those sites in the SHLAA are most suitable to meet housing needs and should be allocated. Accordingly the SHLAA is a policy neutral document. The inclusion of a site in the SHLAA does not mean that it will necessarily be allocated, or gain planning permission.

5 year housing land supply
Local planning authorities are required to identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their housing requirements (The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) paragraph 47).

The Hart 5 Year Housing Land Supply document sets out the five year housing land supply position in Hart District at 1st April 2016.
