The Chancellor of the Exchequer provided his autumn financial statement to the House of Commons on 3rd December 2014. This contained some key policies/measures that will have an impact on housing. These are outlined below together with a brief analysis of their likely outcome and impact on housing within the City.
The Decent Homes Impact Study is a joint project between Nottingham City Homes and Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University. This Partnership received financial support from the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships programme (KTP). The study provides an evaluation of the wider social impacts of Nottingham City Homes' Decent Homes programme.
The report shows the findings from research that we've been conducting in partnership with Nottingham Trent University, looking at the impact of fitting new 'secured by design' windows on burglary in Aspley.
The event gave local stakeholders from both health and housing backgrounds the opportunity to hear examples of good practice from a variety of speakers. It offered a chance to reflect on what weÂ¿re doing in Nottingham and how we can better use our networks, potential partnerships and resources to ensure that we are doing all we can to deliver housing that promotes better health for our citizens across all tenures.
Nathaniel Lichfield and Partners was appointed to carry out this study on behalf of the Nottingham Core Housing Market Area. The purpose of the study was to examine current demographic and housing market information and consult with stakeholders in order to decide upon a 'direction of travel' for the type of housing that needs to be delivered in the sub-region; to examine the potential impact that an ageing population and migration would have on the relationship between household size and dwelling size; to inform the development of robust and effective strategies regarding dwelling delivery; and to develop a toolkit to assist in developing housing mixes that can be applied to sites of different sizes and with different levels of strategic importance.
This briefing seeks to highlight the housing related elements of the GovernmentÂ¿s Autumn Statement Comprehensive Spending Review 2015. The report contains some additional commentary on points we need to consider in order to analysis how some of the announced measures might impact locally.

An assessment document reviewing Housing Market need within the Nottingham Core Housing Market Area
Homeless Watch Nottinghamshire is a snapshot survey of homelessness carried out in the same two week period every year. Agencies in both the statutory and voluntary/community sectors complete a questionnaire with every homeless person they see in the survey period. 2013 is the 10th consecutive year the Homeless Watch survey has been carried out. The questions and format of the survey have remained consistent over time which allows trends over time to be analysed. Homeless Watch is funded by Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire County Council and the local authorities in the County (Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Gedling, Mansfield, Newark & Sherwood and Rushcliffe).
This bulletin provides partners with the latest information on housing related topics (including economic activity, housing market, private sector rented, development and regeneration and social housing) from a local perspective.
Round up of the housing related election manifesto pledges.
To help to identify and recommend approaches to a more strategic approach to working with the PRS in the Nottingham Core HMA and understanding how the sector might change in the future and in particular how these changes can be monitored and understood.
Every year in September and October the autumn political party conferences take place around the UK. It is at these annuals meetings that members have the opportunity to comment and vote on the possible manifesto pledges of their party and new policy is unveiled. This yearÂ¿s conferences were particularly important as they will be the last to take place before next yearÂ¿s general election. It was notable from the conferences that the subject of housing (or more specifically issues surrounding a shortage of supply) has been recognised by politicians as a priority for the public. Consequently, housing (and in particular, house building) featured more prominently in their pledges of what would happen if they were in power. This briefing seeks to summarise the key housing related announcements so far.
