A Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) is a piece of research undertaken by local planning authorities to help them develop an understanding of their local housing market area. It looks at wider issues and considers housing need and demand across all housing tenures, now and into the future.
North Kesteven falls within the Central Lincolnshire Housing Market area which also includes Lincoln and West Lindsey. The current SHMA was completed in 2015 and covers the Central Lincolnshire authorities. The SHMA report is available to download from the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan website.
