Housing (including Traveller accommodation)

A series of Housing related evidence base studies were completed to support the Core Strategy (2009).

These include:

  • Affordable Housing Viability Assessment (2008)
  • Housing Needs Study (2007)
  • Strategic Housing Market Assessment, SHMA (2008)
  • Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, SHLAA (2008)

A new Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) was undertaken in 2015/2016. This will form part of the evidence base that will be used to inform the preparation of the new Mole Valley Local Plan (Future Mole Valley). For updates on Mole Valley's new Local Plan, please see

The SHLAA was partially updated through the Site Assessments for the Housing and Traveller Sites Plan (HTSP) consultation (please note work on the HTSP has now been terminated). This document is available to download for reference.

In 2013 a Traveller Accommodation Assessment (TAA) was completed. The TAA is an assessment of the accommodation needs of Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople in Mole Valley over the next 15 years (up to 2027).

All these documents are available (see 'Downloads').
