Evidence: Strategic Housing Market Assessment

The Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) for Central Norfolk was published in January 2016. Its purpose is to set out the Objectively Assessed Need (OAN) for housing in the local planning authority areas of Broadland, Breckland, North Norfolk, Norwich and South Norfolk together with the Broads Authority.

The SHMA was prepared by Opinion Research Services (ORS) and will be used by the commissioning authorities as a shared evidence base to inform the Local Plan process.

Elements of the 2016 SHMA have been updated by a new SHMA 2017, which provides a new OAN and new estimates for affordable housing need across the Central Norfolk area.
