Sub-Regional Strategic Housing Market Assessment

 

Carrying out a Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) is a key requirement of Government’s planning for housing policy, which was set out in Planning Policy Statement 3 ( PPS3 ) released in 2006 and is concerned with understanding how housing markets operate. The Assessment forms an important part of the evidence base for Local Development Frameworks and policies responding to changing household requirements. The key difference from past housing needs studies is the sub regional basis, which reflects the fact that housing market areas do not respect local authority boundaries.

 

This Strategic Housing Market Assessment covers a sub-region of the West Midlands, an area that encompasses the seven districts of South Staffordshire, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Cannock Chase and Telford and Wrekin.

 

The assessment is a technical study to determine the location and amount of market and affordable housing needed and for whom and in what timescale. The Assessment provides robust evidence on which local authorities and partner organisations can base planning and policy interventions that will help deliver better housing for those living in the region.

 

The results of the assessment are available in full and as an executive summary through the links below. We would welcome any queries or comments you may have.
