Report published February 2011
This bulletin is the first of a new mid-year publication which will complement the annual monitoring report by analysing data for Hampshire including Portsmouth and Southampton, for the six months April - September. Tracking key development data every six months instead of only every twelve, provides more frequent monitoring and earlier warning of changes in market conditions.

This bulletin analyses data on starts, completions and planning approvals for residential development for the period 1st April 2010 to 30th September 2010 and compares it with data for the same period in the previous four years.

Development in Hampshire 2009/10 Monitoring Bulletin

Report published October 2010
Information on development activity, which is collected by the Environment Department's Spatial Strategy and Research Group, is central to providing an up to date and accurate evidence base. It is the focus of this monitoring bulletin which looks at housebuilding and employment development during the last year (2009/10), compares this with policy targets, and sets it in the context of trends over preceding years. A review of the number of starts on new sites and planning permissions granted provides an insight into likely building rates over the coming years.

Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton Home Movers Survey 2010

Report published September 2010
The Hampshire Home Movers Survey 2010 is the latest in a series of publications on housing market trends. The last survey was conducted in 2002 and covered the occupiers of new and previously occupied properties and rented dwellings.

This report collates information about people who moved into homes in Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton during the year 2008/09. It explores where they previously lived, their reasons for moving, the type, tenure and size of their new home, and their satisfaction with it. This insight into the type, size and tenure of properties changing hands, and the new occupiers’ origin, household size and satisfaction will assist population forecasting and the formulation of new planning policies.

To accompany the Home Movers Survey Report is a PowerPoint presentation given to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Planning Officers Group (HIPOG) Planning Research Liaison Group (PRLG) on the 22nd September 2010 which summarises the report and some of its key findings:

The Socio-Economic Profile of Rural Hampshire

Report published April 2010
The Socio-Economic Profile of Rural Hampshire provides data and information about rural communities in Hampshire. It includes facts and figures about population, jobs, housing, rural deprivation, transport and accessibility, broadband provision, volunteering and other key topics. The Rural Profile will help Hampshire County Council and its partners with their projects and decision-making, including rural proofing - the process whereby services are examined and modified to ensure they will not unfairly disadvantage rural areas.

The 'Rural Profile' has been divided into chapters for ease of downloading (due to file size restrictions), but please do see the Rural Hampshire Factsheet for a summary of key themes contained in the document:

Hampshire has growing numbers of older people. This study looks at the current and predicted numbers of older households, and  their housing needs and aspirations.

Affordable Housing Study 2009

Report published October 2009
Hampshire local authorities are committed to increasing the amount of affordable housing.  The number of affordable homes delivered is also one of the Government’s National Indicators which are being used to assess the performance of local authorities.  This makes it imperative to analyse the need for and supply of affordable housing, and to identify ways to increase that supply. This report seeks to do that, building on a similar document published by the County Council in 2004.  This County Council document relates only to the geographic area covered by the Council and all references to ‘Hampshire’ refers to the County Council’s area only.
