In partnership with the other authorities of the Exeter and Torbay housing sub-regions we commissioned a Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA). The SHMA assesses housing need and is a requirement under national planning policy.
The report is a key part of the evidence base required to ensure the delivery of housing that meets the needs of communities now and in years to come.
The SHMA provides a district wide assessment of need, local area needs assessments are undertaken by or in partnership with Devon Communities Together. A number of housing reports assessing local housing need have been carried out for Parishes within East Devon.
