Housing Need and Supply

Social Housing Now and in the Future
This work uses secondary data sources to understand who is currently living in social rented housing, their characteristics including their former tenure, entrants and leavers, and who is likely to be living in the social rented sector in the future. It was carried out by Alan Holmans, Sarah Monk, Michael Jones, Diane Lister, Christina Short and Christine Whitehead. The research was funded by DCLG for whom an internal policy related paper was also produced.
Secondary Analysis of Housing Market Data

Provision for key workers and unmet housing need
This is a follow up to a previous study which produced an estimate of newly arising demand and need for housing in the East of England. The current study produces an estimate of unmet need and of key worker housing requirements in the region. Part B of the project provides a template for districts and sub-regions to produce their own assessments of key worker housing. Both reports are available on the Assembly’ web site.
Planning and market signals
This small project was commissioned by DCLG (then ODPM) to assist their thinking in terms of responses to the recommendations of the Barker Review of Housing Supply (2004) which suggested that planners take more notice of market signals when developing their housing policies. It took the form of answering specific questions raised by DCLG. Methods included literature reviews and interviews with key stakeholders. The project culminated in two short internal reports to DCLG.
Input into Strategic Housing Needs Assessments Draft Guidance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.
Housing Need in the South East
This is a follow on to a previous study which outlined a methodology for assessing housing need in the South East region. There are two small projects: one producing an estimate of newly arising demand and need and one an estimate of unmet current housing need. It covers sub-regions as well as the region as a whole. The reports form part of the evidence base for the South East Plan.
