Posted on 1 Aug 2014 by Marion

SESplan sought opinions on the draft Housing Need and Demand Assessment (HNDA). This sets out information to support land use planning. It provides an estimate of the total additional future housing required over a 20 year period. This is split by households who can afford owner occupation; private rent; below market rent and social rent. This information is used to set policies to provide an appropriate mix of housing, including types and sizes of affordable housing.


Following the approval of SDP1 by Scottish Ministers in June 2013, SESplan are now starting prepare the second Strategic Development Plan (SDP2). It will set out the vision and future strategy for the South East Scotland area for the next 20 years. This HNDA is being drafted, along with other evidence, to inform the first stage in SDP2 preparation (Main Issues Report).
