Call for Sites

Tamworth Borough Council ‘Call for Sites’

As part of a commitment to assess the evidence behind the Tamworth Local Plan 2006-2031 we are currently undertaking a 'call for sites'.

Undertaking a call for sites is a process we carry out on a regular basis and it was last carried out comprehensively in 2012, to inform the preparation of the Local Plan, which was adopted in 2016. It is an opportunity for landowners, agents and developers to promote sites for future housing and employment development. Information collected through this call for sites will help in our preparation of a Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment and Brownfield Land Register.

Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA)

We are responsible for preparing and keeping up to date a SHELAA (formerly a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment or SHLAA, which just looked at housing) to help inform future plan making in the district. The SHELAA gathers information on potential sites for housing and economic development and assesses their suitability. As part of this, it is increasingly important for us to understand the deliverability of sites. 

The SHELAA is a technical assessment which is designed to establish whether land in the borough might be available for development for a range of different uses. However, the SHELAA does not allocate land for development.

How can I get Involved?

If you are aware of any land within the borough that could be considered for inclusion within the SHELAA, please complete our online call for sites mapping site or alternatively fill out the submission form.

As we have not undertaken a call for sites for a number of years we are starting from scratch, so even if you have previously submitted details of a site to us, please re-submit. This will allow us to have the most accurate and up to date information available to assess each site.

If you are using the online mapping site we only require basic info, we will contact you should we require any further details. If filling out the online form, please put in as much detail as possible and send a site plan (1:1250 or 1:2500 scale) with the boundaries clearly marked in red. 

Your submission should be completed online or alternatively the form should be sent together with a location plan, and any other supporting documentation, to: developmentplan@tamworth.gov.uk.
