All local planning authorities are required by national planning policy and guidance to maintain an up-to-date picture of the amount of land that is available for new development, including land for housing and economic development. This process is known as the Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA).

The HELAA will help in the preparation of the review of the Local Plan (to cover the period to 2036) by identifying potential sites for new homes, employment and other land uses. It will show which sites are being promoted for development at a particular time and and will be updated regularly. The HELAA replaced the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment which identified potential sites for new homes as part of the Local Plan (2006-26).

Here is our Response to HELLA that was sent to West Berkshire council relevant to potential development sites in the Shaw cum Donnington parish. This included feedback from parishioners either in person at our meeting in March or by phone and email.

For clarity, here is the HELAA map relevant to the potential development sites.
