South Ayrshire Housing Need and Demand Assessment 2021-2026

The Housing Need and Demand Assessment (HNDA) is produced every five years to ensure housing in South Ayrshire reflects demand.

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 places a duty on local authorities to carry out an assessment of the following within the local authority area:

  • the type and condition of the housing stock,
  •  the housing needs of the people in the area,
  • the demand for, and availability of housing, and
  • the specialist housing provision available to meet particular needs.

This Assessment is used as the evidence base to inform the development of the Council's Local Housing Strategy which is currently ongoing.

Information can be made available on request in braille, large print or audio formats, and can be translated into a range of languages - call South Ayrshire Council Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 0900 for information. 

If you wish to make any comments relating to the HNDA or the development of the Local Housing Strategy (LHS), please email us on
