The 2016 update followed the Call for Sites process in January and February 2016. The sites brought forward were added and the document was used to inform the Local Plan Housing Statement.
The SHLAA does not determine whether a site should be allocated for housing development. That is the role of a Local Plan. The SHLAA includes all known sites that have the potential for housing development. The inclusion of a site in the SHLAA does not have any relevance to whether planning permission would be granted at the site; the SHLAA is the evidence for the Local Plan not planning applications.
