Landowners, developers, site promoters and property agents are being urged to come forward in Harborough if they have land suitable for development.

The new Call for Sites scheme is being launched by Harborough District Council.

And it’s the ideal chance to submit sites in Harborough which may have potential to be developed for development, say the council.

Sites received through the Call for Sites will be assessed as part of a new Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA).

The analysis of sites does not change their planning status.

But it does help the council to understand the development potential of land across the district to meet expected future development needs.

The local authority is inviting the submission of possible sites for a wide range of uses including garden villages or new settlements, strategic development areas, housing, employment and retail.

You can find further information about the Call for Sites, including a link to the online site submission form, on the council’s website at www.harborough.gov.uk/CallForSites

The closing date for the submission of sites is Friday June 4.

“It is important to note that previously submitted or assessed sites will not be carried forward into the new assessment,” said Harborough council.

“All sites will need to be submitted via the new online form.
