Charnwood Borough Council are seeking quotations to appoint experienced consultants to undertake an assessment of housing needs to inform the preparation of the Charnwood Local Plan. The Housing Needs Assessment is being commissioned to update our evidence on housing needs in the Borough and provide robust and proportionate evidence to inform the various housing policy requirements of the Local Plan.
