Eden District Council makes call for sites


Eden District Council is encouraging landowners to come forward with sites they may wish to promote for future housing and employment developments.

The council’s ‘call for sites’ exercise will inform its Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and Brownfield Register, which will eventually be used for the Eden Local Plan.

Landowners have until November 27, 2017 to make submissions. The call for sites applies only to land within the Eden District.

Julie Liddle, director of Robson & Liddle, said: “This is the ideal time for landowners to put forward potential development land, even if the site has been refused previously.

“The land can be brownfield or greenfield land. As well as making the council aware of what land is available, the information will also be used by developers searching for land opportunities.

“Robson & Liddle is able to advise landowners on whether their land is suitable for promotion and, if so, the best way to promote it to fit with the council’s needs. We urge anyone considering putting forward land to contact us at the earliest opportunity.”
