Housing Need and Demand Assessment 3

We have a legal duty to provide an assessment of housing need and demand, and the providing related services. This falls under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001. The Housing Need and Demand Assessments (HNDAs) are overseen by the Scottish Government's Centre for Housing Market Analysis (CHMA). It considers whether the HNDA is 'robust and credible'.

The third South-East Scotland Housing Need and Demand Assessment (HNDA3) achieved robust and credible status from CHMA on Thursday 28th July 2022. HNDA3 provides the evidence base for policy decisions in Local Housing Strategies. It also influences land allocation decisions in Local Development Plans. This is subject to agreement of housing supply targets, that will follow.

The South-East Scotland HNDA3 executive summary report and CHMA sign-off letter are below and the full HNDA and further supplementary documents are available through the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Regional Deal website.
