What is a housing need assessment?

A housing need assessment is a report that we produce to give a detailed analysis of the housing requirements of parishes. This is carried out by sending a survey form to each household within the parish.

Where are housing need assessments carried out?

Housing need assessments are carried out in the settlements that have been identified as a tier 3 or tier 4 settlement in the Local Plan.

For more information please, see the Sedgemoor Local Plan.
