Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)

The Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) is a technical study that determines the suitability, availability and achievability of land for development.

You can view the sites across Newcastle through our interactive online map.

  • On the interactive map, you can zoom in and out to get a closer look of the area you're interested in.  Click-and-drag or use the arrow keys to move the move around.   Click a site on the map to display a pop-up box with more information on it.  The sites are colour coded for Housing, Employment, Mixed Use, and Discounted.  There is an option in the top right corner of the map to switch the aerial photography on and off.


The PDF files on this page may not be suitable for users of assistive technology. Request an accessible format.

Please note changes were made to the HELAA report (September 2018) and analysis of supply sites as a consequence of national changes to NPPF/ PPG. Within Appendix 3 is an updated five year housing land supply position (February 2019).
