Housing research

Strategic Housing Market Assessment

The information in it is updated regularly, and ongoing improvements to it are being made.

Private sector house condition surveys

We conduct  private sector house condition surveys as a way of maintaining a detailed picture of housing conditions in the private sector.

The survey results help us form strategies and inform investment decisions, and feed into statistical returns and other internal reports.

The most recent one was carried out in 2015. This was made up of two elements: a report based on modelling of the housing stock; and an interactive atlas which pulls together a range of data from other sources. 

Our previous housing condition survey was in 2009

Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Needs Assessment
