SSDC Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment Report (HELAA)
Full report here but in summary the HELAA is conducted by SSDC on regular basis. It identifies opportunities for housing or economic development but is not an allocation of sites nor does it imply that sites will get planning permission if it was requested. The link below is map showing the HELAA areas within Barton that could theoretically take 5 or more houses.
The HELAA report doesn’t contain many caveats and is worth reading if you have an interest in this process.
