Test Valley Borough Council carried out a Call for Sites as part of the review of the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) from Friday 6th September, until Friday 1st November last year. Since then the process has been underway to consider the characteristics of each of these sites within Test Valley.

As part of this process an overview for each of the Parishes where sites have been submitted has been produced showing the location of those sites and the number of new dwellings being proposed; some sites are being promoted for wholly economic development and will therefore not show a figure.

The SHELAA will only identify sites which have been promoted to the Council, it does NOT allocate sites. The inclusion of the site in the SHELAA does not imply that the Council would necessarily grant planning permission at all.

The attached map for the Smannell Parish is available below. The  mauve and blue outlined areas are those areas offered by landowners but do not have planning permission, which would haveto be given during the next Test Valley Borough Council strategic planning process.
