Housing Market Assessment

The Strategic Housing Market Assessment was carried out in 2012.  It informed the Council’s Local Plan which was adopted in June 2014 and provides valuable information that shapes housing policy in Stafford Borough.

The research focussed on four core areas: 

  • a review of housing market areas;
  • an assessment of housing need;
  • an assessment of affordable housing requirements; and,
  • a review of general housing market requirements with policy recommendations.

As part of the review of the Local Plan, an Economic Development and Housing Needs Assessment (EDHNA) has been produced, which formed part of the Issues and Options Consultation in early 2020.
