Local Councils publish much information about their Local Plans but it is hard to find and gather into one place. Statistics are useful for helping people to understand what is going on and for getting press coverage. Please help us by filling in this form for as many Local Plans as you know about. All items on the form are optional so just enter the relevant information you know and leave the rest blank. If you have updates, additions or corrections later on, just resubmit a new version of the form with the extra info and we will merge it all together.

Strategic Housing Market Assessment

The Strategic Housing Market Assessment is a report that analyses local population growth and migration to determine the Objectively Assessed Need for housing in an area and other numbers. The report may cover one Local Planning Authority or a number of authorities in a housing market area. The Planning Authorities use these numbers as a starting point for their housing targets.

The Objectively Assessed Need (OAN) is the number of houses per year for each Local Planning Authority. It may be given as a single number or a min/max range.
