Rural housing targets: CRC analysis note

In October 2009 we produced a report on the impact of the recession on rural housing. We sent this report to government to inform discussions at the National Economic Council. 

Since then we have been raising these issues in discussions with the Homes and Communities Agency and the Department for Communities and Local Government.  One of the issues raised in the report was the government’s reduction of the rural housing target in settlements below 3,000 population from 10,300 to 8,500 for the years 2008/11.

We have since been in discussions with government and the HCA to examine whether these reductions have been proportional and what the changing rural housing delivery programme means for rural areas.

Our note on our findings can be found here.
