The purpose of this chapter is to explain how to analyse housing supply within a particular area in a way that subsequently allows understanding of its overall adequacy, and identification of key supply problems that need to be addressed.
In this chapter therefore we will establish how to:
- Define, categorise and describe existing supply
- Use available and new information to measure important aspects of existing supply
- Assess the ways in which existing stock is being used
- Measure and understand the impact of new supply
And how, through completing these tasks, to provide a clear understanding of the structure of the supply side of a local housing system.
