The Council has a duty to assess housing need within Amber
Valley, including the housing needs of vulnerable groups such as
the elderly, teenage parents, people with chaotic lifestyles, BME
groups and people with mental ill health.
The Council commissions a Housing Needs Assessment every four to
five years that provides detail about housing need in the
area. We also work with the authorities within our Housing
Market Area (South Derbyshire and Derby City) to commission a
Strategic Housing Market Assessment. The latest version of
both of these documents is available from this page.
The Council also keeps updated housing needs data at ward level
that is available to partner organisations on request.
