Chelmsford City Council

Chelmsford, along with the rest of England, is now in lockdown until further notice. You can find out what this means and get other useful information on our coronavirus updates page.

Call for sites, SHELAA and parish maps

Our Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) identifies land that could be used for new developments, forming part of our new Local Plan.

  

Current call for sites

The SHELAA is open all year round, meaning you can submit a new site or amend an existing site on a rolling basis.

You can:

  • submit a new site, that has not previously been included within a call for sites or SLAA submission
  • update or amend a site that is already on our call for sites or SLAA database (amendments can include adding or removing land, providing additional details, or changing ownership) 


Previous calls for sites

To identify available land for all types of use, we held a call for sites in:

  • winter 2014    
  • winter 2015/16, alongside the new Local Plan Issues and Options consultation
  • spring 2017, alongside the Preferred Options Consultation
  • spring 2018, alongside the Pre-Submission Consultation
  • November 2018 through to December 2019

Following each call for sites, we published an annual report.

The annual report does not allocate sites for development. It does, however, provide information that we used to prepare our adopted Local Plan and will use in forthcoming Local Plan reviews.

Chelmsford Policy Board considered the latest annual report on 4 June 2020.

The SHELAA 2020 annual consists of: 

The report and appendices explain our methodology and assessment criteria, and include our assessments of the sites we received.

Some of these documents feature detailed information and are large in size. You may find it easier to download and view these documents on a desktop computer, rather than on a smartphone or tablet.  

There is a map for each parish in Chelmsford.

The map shows the boundary of the parish, with the assessed sites outlined in red and highlighted in orange. If a site crosses a parish boundary, it is included on both parish maps.

To understand the maps and the site references, you need to look at the parish maps alongside Appendix 3 (Site Assessment).

The parish maps solely show the location of all assessed sites. They do not reflect any outcomes of the assessment.
