Lewisham launches land search

Lewisham Council has launched a search for land in the borough suitable for redevelopment to help the borough meets its new homes target. They say:

We have issued a call for sites to be included in the Lewisham 2015 Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA).

The purpose of this study is to update the database of sites available to meet the borough’s housing targets until 2033,  and to provide evidence for the Lewisham Local Plan (currently in preparation) of the land available to meet those targets.

The study will assess sites throughout the borough for their potential to help address the borough’s housing needs. These will include sites proposed in response to this call for sites.

All nominated sites over 0.25 hectares will be considered as part of the study, and will be assessed for housing suitability, using strategic and site information through the London Housing Capacity Study System.

Your nominated sites should be received by the Lewisham Planning Service by 30 June 2015. Click here for more information.

If Lewisham is like the majority of London boroughs, those sites will tend to lie along its boundaries.
