Input into Strategic Housing Needs Assessments Draft Guidance

CCHPR carried out research for DCLG (then ODPM) to produce guidance to local authorities and sub-regions on understanding their local housing market. It updates previous guidance on housing needs assessments and builds on a manual for undertaking housing market assessments.

It involved a survey of all local authorities, ten case studies, interviews with consultants and other experts, and further case studies to road test the draft guidance as it emerged. It covers England and Wales and is complementary to two other sets of guidance which DCLG commissioned relating to size, type and mix of dwellings and the implementation of PPG3.
