Our partner authorities are South Hams District Council and Plymouth City Council.

Together, we asked Peter Brett Associates to undertake this assessment in 2017. The results were used to inform the Joint Local Plan.

All local authorities are required to prepare evidence that objectively assesses the future housing needs of different groups in the community. The last time we did this was in 2013, so the 2017 Strategic Housing Market Needs Assessment is more up-to-date.

This latest Strategic Housing Market Needs Assessment will be used to make informed decisions about housing strategy, resources and policy in the future.
