We are aiming to facilitate the construction of 80 000 new homes by 2031 - find out more here...

A number of studies have been undertaken in relation to housing across the city. These help us plan for the future in our Planning Policy documents.

Strategic Housing Market Assessment (2013)

The Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) estimates overall housing need and demand for affordable and market housing, and dwelling size.

Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (2015)

The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a study of sites that have the potential to accommodate housing development. It assesses sites which are suitable for housing, how much housing they can deliver and when they are likely to be developed. The latest 5 Year supply figures are also below.

SHLAA 2015 information is also available via an interactive mapping system called Local View. Access Local View here....

The 2012, 2013 and 2014 SHLAA's are below for comparison.

Joint Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (2014)

A Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment for Birmingham was prepared by the Opinion Research Services (ORS) in May 2014. This Study undertook an assessment of the accommodation needs of Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople and identified requirements for additional residential pitches up to 2031. This replaces the previous assessment undertaken jointly with Solihull and Coventry Councils in 2008, below for comparison.
