Call for sites

The ‘call for sites’ is an early opportunity for individuals, landowners, and developers to suggest sites within the borough for development over the next 20 years. The site suggestions received by us will be used to inform the local plan review.

It will not determine whether a site should be allocated for development.

The purpose of the call for sites exercise is to gain up to date information about land that has potential for housing, employment, or mixed uses development and whether it is suitable to be allocated as part of the local plan review. It is also seeking to identify land with potential for the delivery of biodiversity net gains (BNG).

The submission of a site through the call for sites exercise does not mean that the site will be allocated. Sites already allocated in the current Local Plan do not need to be resubmitted unless the site ownership, expectations for delivery of the proposed use have changed, in which case a new site submission form should be completed.

Decisions on whether sites will ultimately be allocated for development will be taken through the local plan review process having regard to development needs, sustainability principles and stakeholder and community consultation and feedback. The call for sites exercise is therefore the start of the process.

Please note the following points before submitting a site:

  1. Put forward only one site per form
  2. Provide a location map clearly and accurately showing the boundary of the site in red
  3. Use an Ordnance Survey base map and at a clear recognised scale. You can purchase a map from the Planning Department or visit the Planning Portal for options to purchase maps online
  4. Provide proof of ownership for all the land within the boundary (providing copies of title deed plan if possible), and contact details for the landowner(s)
  5. Provide written confirmation that the landowner(s) is willing to make the site available for the development r use proposed
  6. Sites proposed for employment or mixed-use development should be at least 0.25ha or capable of accommodating at least 500 square metres of employment floor space
  7. Sites proposed for residential development should be at least 0.2ha or be able to accommodate five dwellings
  8. Provide accurate information and as much detail as possible on any site constraints and any third-party issues
