Housing Market and Needs Assessment 2014
Newark and Sherwood District Council is required by Government to have a clear understanding of housing requirements in the district and to carry out an assessment of housing need every few years. The last surveys were conducted in 2003 and 2009.
In March 2014 Newark and Sherwood District Council commissioned David Couttie Associates to carry out a Housing Market and Needs Survey (HMNA). More than 9.500 residents across the Newark and Sherwood district were asked to take part in a housing survey during April and May.
The survey asked residents to comment on topics such as whether their current accommodation is adequate and what they think their future housing requirements will be. The final report is now available and provides key recommendations around affordable housing targets, tenure and mix and property size targets for both affordable and market housing. The survey results also provide a discussion around older person’s housing needs.
The survey is split into two parts. The first part, the report provides an overview of housing need across the district. The second part, the sub area analysis provide an overview of housing need for both market and affordable housing at a sub area level in the district including Southwell, Sherwood, Mansfield, Nottingham, Sutton on Trent, Collingham and Newark areas.
