Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)
The Wolverhampton SHLAA provides the main mechanism for identifying potential housing sites across the city. It assesses the suitability of sites for housing, and how developable and deliverable they are. The SHLAA is updated annually and forms a key part of the evidence base for the Local Plan, including the Black Country Plan Review which is currently underway. The current SHLAA, which has a base date of April 2020, was published in May 2021 and is available in the Downloads section. Detailed site information is available in tables within the report.
SHLAA site boundaries can be viewed on an interactive map.

Brownfield Register (Part 1)
The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 and the Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017 require local authorities to prepare and maintain registers of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development. The Order provides that sites entered on Part 2 of the new brownfield registers will be granted permission in principle.
The current Wolverhampton Brownfield Register consists of April 2020 SHLAA sites where the former use was brownfield i.e. excluding open space and garden land sites. There are currently no Part 2 sites. The information provided for each site is as required by current guidance. Site information and site boundaries can be viewed on an Interactive Map.
