LAND suitable for housing development has been pinpointed in Vale Royal.

Responding to a new Government initiative, Vale Royal commissioned consultants White Young Green to assist in producing a strategic housing land availability assessment (SHLAA).

A draft SHLAA was prepared identifying sites with potential for housing and estimates when they are likely to be developed.

It will be used to help inform the production of local planning policies and identifying areas for future housing development.
