Strategic housing market assessment (SHMA)

A strategic housing market assessment (SHMA) was published by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) in January 2019.

The purpose of the SHMA is develop a robust understanding of housing market dynamics and to provide an assessment of future needs for both market and affordable housing and the housing needs of different groups within the population over the next twenty years.

The SHMA forms part of the evidence base for the revised draft Greater Manchester spatial framework (GMSF) and the revised draft local plan. It provides an objective assessment of the need for housing within Greater Manchester and sets out evidence to inform the overall housing requirements for the conurbation and the ten individual local authorities.
