Housing Needs Assessment at neighbourhood plan level

More and more neighbourhood planners are seeking to understand the specific housing requirements of their neighbourhood and to work out the ‘fair share’ of wider housing growth they should plan for, including the quantity and type of new housing across their areas. To do this, neighbourhood plan housing policies need to be underpinned by robust, objectively assessed data on local housing need.

This guide is aimed at neighbourhood planners. It explains how neighbourhood planners, including Parish and Town Councils and Neighbourhood Forums, can produce Housing Needs Assessments (HNAs) for their neighbourhood area, why they may need to do so, and the resources necessary to undertake this work. This guide has been written by AECOM for Locality.
