The Research and Intelligence Unit is involved in a variety of
work involving the collation and analysis of housing data both at a
county and regional level to support the evaluation and development
of policy and strategy. This section gives an overview of our work
and includes a variety of reports and data which you may find
Strategic Housing Market Assessment
A Strategic Housing Market
Assessment (SHMA) provides a strategic view of housing
supply and demand in all housing sectors up to 2030 and also
provides Local Authorities with a comprehensive understanding of
the dynamics and segments of the functional housing markets
operating within Worcestershire. Together with the Assessment, it
forms part of the evidence base informing emerging planning and
housing policies and strategies for those authorities bringing
forward their Development Plan Documents for examination.
Also included within this section is a previous assessment and
subsequent monitoring reports, as well as a Gypsy Traveller
and Accomodation Assessment, which was been produced to assess the
housing needs of gypsies and travellers.
South Worcestershire Housing Needs Assessment
A South Worcestershire Housing Needs
Assessment was commissioned by the three South
Worcestershire Districts, Malvern Hills, Worcester City and
Wychavon to assess the local housing needs to inform the South
Worcestershire Joint Core Strategy (SW JCS).
West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy Annual Monitoring
The unit produces the annual housing supply monitoring report on
behalf of the West Midlands Local Government Association. This
report examines the progress of authorities across the region in
achieving targets set within national and regional planning
West Midlands Housing Market Summary
This West Midlands Housing Market Summary report is
a detailed analysis of housing supply based upon the West Midlands
Regional Residential Land Availability Survey, which contributes to
the substantive evidence base for the Communities for the Future
chapter of RSS Annual Monitoring Reports. It is also an assessment
of the key factors influencing housing demand including people’s
aspirations about where they want to live and the nature of housing
affordability across the Region.
In the data section, you will find a range of links to topical
local level housing data, including
up-to-date house prices and data on housing type and tenure from
the 2001 Census.
