The Council, as strategic housing authority, has a statutory requirement to undertake regular assessments of future housing requirements within the district. We commissioned Arc4 to undertake a district-wide housing needs assessment (HNA) in 2020.
The study provides an evidence base for the local development framework (LDF). The HNA is used by the Council to support decision-making for investment and planning applications and to support housing and planning strategies.
Parish housing needs studies
To complement the district-wide survey, we‘ve undertaken a programme of parish housing needs surveys and analyses.
These support and inform our housing strategy and decision-making process in providing new affordable housing.
