Housing Market Area (HMA)
The Investment Plan for the HMA which covers North Derbyshire
and Bassetlaw, will set out the investment required to deliver our
vision and economic purpose. In doing this it will identify the
needs to be addressed based on robust evidence from existing
regional and local strategies. It will include objectives, outputs
and outcomes that are expected from our interventions.
In addition to priorities for housing, regeneration and
infrastructure (physical and social), it will also include
assumptions on how affordable housing will be funded, how
the Decent Homes Standard is to be achieved, priorities for
housing specific groups of people with support needs and for
vulnerable people, growth and market renewal areas. The plan is
likely to cover a 10 year period.
In September 2007 Fordham Research Ltd
completed a Strategic Housing Market Assessment covering seven
Local Authority Areas in the Northern area of the East Midlands.
The Authorities covered were Bassetlaw, Ashfield, Mansfield, Newark
& Sherwood, Bolsover, Chesterfield and North East
The Strategic Housing Market Assessment sets
out a framework allowing local Authorities to develop a good
understanding of how Housing Markets operate in their area.
It assesses Housing Need and Demand, and informs Local Development
Frameworks, as well as Regional Spatial Strategy Planning.
Four documents arising from the
research undertaken by Fordham can be found below.
These are as follows:-
deals primarily with the Bassetlaw Area.
This covers four local
Authorities Areas of Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Bolsover and North
East Derbyshire (the Northern HMA). These Local Authorities
are seen as having close links to the Sheffield City Region and
their Housing Markets are seen to be significantly influenced by
this region. The four Local Authorities in the Northern HMA
are working together in partnership with the Sheffield City Region
on a range of issues to ensure future housing development meets
housing needs of both local communities as well as the region as an
This report covers all of the
research undertaken by Fordham including the four Authorities in
the Northern HMA (Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Bolsover and NE
Derbyshire) as well as the three Authorities in the Nottingham
Outer HMA (Ashfield, Mansfield and Newark and
Sherwood). As well as taking into account the influence
of the Sheffield City Region the report also takes account of the
influence of other major cities in the region (i.e. Nottingham and
Derby), which for Bassetlaw have far less impact than the
settlements in South Yorkshire.
The department is aware that this document is now 3
years old and market conditions are forever changing, it is
anticipated that the Strategic Group will be looking to
conduct a further Assessment.
