It should be noted that the SHLAA is a study of housing potential and does not itself allocate sites for development but will inform future planning policy development. The identification of housing potential from sites and buildings in the assessments does not imply that the Council would necessarily grant planning permission for their residential development. Similarly, it does not preclude the possibility of residential development being granted on sites which have not been included. Any planning applications will continue to be treated on their own merits based upon planning policy and other material considerations.

The primary role of the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is to:
- Identify sites with potential for housing;
- Assess their housing potential; and
- Assess when they are likely to be developed.
The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment was produced by Cheshire East Council and was approved by the Cabinet Member for Performance and Capacity on 26th March 2012; it will now form a key piece of evidence in developing the Local Plan Core Strategy.
