Intelligence: 18 November 2015Residential Research: Development Opportunities 2015

In our latest residential research with Knight Frank, we identify Local Authorities in England where economic and planning data, combined with regional knowledge, suggest good fundamentals for residential development in the short to medium term.

Factors taken into account include forecast economic and employment growth, as well as future housing supply and demand. Sales to stock ratios, social environment, infrastructure and affordability were also measured. Local planning knowledge was then added, examining which LAs had a five-year land supply and where a local plan was in place, as well as looking at policy support for housing and economic growth. This resulted in a list of 18 top areas where the fundamentals suggested development opportunities.
