Housing Needs Assessment

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.
