On 9 October 2017 Tendring District Council, along with Braintree and Colchester Councils, submitted their Local Plans and accompanying documents to the Planning Inspectorate.

Due to strategic cross-boundary policies and allocations, Tendring, Braintree and Colchester’s Local Plan share an identical Section 1. As a result of this, Section 1 was considered through a joint examination in public. Tendring specific policies and allocations can be found within Section 2 of the Local Plan, which was considered through a separate examination. In accordance with Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012, documents were submitted to the Planning Inspectorate to support the examination of the entire Plan.

SHLAA

A Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is an essential part of the ‘evidence base’ that is needed to inform and underpin decisions on allocating sites for housing in Local Plans. The primary purposes of the SHLAA are to:

  • identify sites and broad locations with potential for housing development;
  • assess their housing potential; and
  • assess their suitability for development and the likelihood of development coming forward.

The most recent SHLAA was published in October 2021.
