Rural Housing

Identifying housing need in the horseracing industry
In order to inform its investment plans and future housing strategy Racing Homes wanted to ascertain the level of housing need currently experienced within the horse racing industry and, in particular, where they have existing housing stock. The aim of this research was to establish the degree and nature of current unmet need for affordable housing among racing staff and to make recommendations as to how that need may best be met.
