West London Small Sites Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) – Stakeholder Survey

Troy Planning + Design has been appointed to assist the West London Alliance in assessing the draft London Plan’s proposals to increase the delivery of housing on ‘small sites’ and introduce specific targets for this type of development. The seven boroughs (Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, and Hounslow) have agreed to use existing development stakeholder contacts details and incorporate stakeholder engagement as a valuable part of this assessment. The consultant team would be extremely grateful if you could complete an online survey regarding small sites, following the link below.  All answers provided will be analyzed and reported anonymously.

The draft London Plan defines small sites as those below 0.25 hectares / 0.6 acres. The proposed targets for each London borough for a 10-year period 2019-2029 form part of draft Policy H2.

The purpose of the assessment is to assess both the overall capacity for development and factors affecting delivery on small sites in the context of West London. Input from the development sector will help to illustrate existing patterns of activity and the levels of output currently delivered on small sites. Information on the key opportunities and barriers to development will be valuable in identifying the most effective mechanisms to support the development of small sites and assessing the achievability of the draft London Plan’s proposals. The outcomes of the study will be used to inform any reviews of the boroughs’ Local Plans.

It would be appreciated if you could complete the survey by Fri 24 August 2018.
