Combining housing needs and strategic asset management assessment

Anna Evans Housing Consultancy and co-consultants Mandy Littlewood and is4 were appointed by Renfrewshire Council in 2015 to undertake a comprehensive housing needs and demand assessment to inform development of the Council’s Local Housing Strategy. The Council also wanted to review its sustainability assessment of the Council’s own housing stock and factor this into the HNDA and long term planning decisions. The consultancy team provided an asset management review using is4’s SAMs tool – Strategic Asset Management System and provided conclusions on the level and location of sustainable stock.
