West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy revisions – Re-run of the affordable housing figures

CCHPR carried out a series of re-runs of the affordable housing calculations for the West Midlands Regional Assembly to support its work as Regional Housing and Planning Body.

The West Midlands Regional Assembly in revising the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) required updated figures for future need for affordable housing over the next 20 years. Using Alan Holmans’s method based on the household projections, CCHPR is carrying a series of estimates of this need, including identifying need arising in different parts of the region and dividing this need into social and intermediate housing. As well as the calculations, CCHPR is providing a thorough commentary to enable officers and members to understand how the figures are reached, and modelling the application of different constraints, such as overall target growth and land availability, to the figures to reach the final recommendations.
