research & analysis

Population and housing forecasts are key assets in planning service provision. The Localism agenda gives local authorities greater input into planning the future for their areas.

AnalyticsCambridge produces population and housing forecasts for land use planning. The model uses the best demographic information relevant to forecasting housing demand. The model can link population and housing forecasts to economic trends.

AnalyticsCambridge has the experience of working with planners from different organisations to provide population and housing forecasts for different areas. Our service can include working with customers to test alternative assumptions and selecting the most suitable option. It also can include the documentation of assumptions and results, presenting these to a variety of audiences, and defending them at public enquiries.

In addition to population and housing forecasts for land use planning, AnalyticsCambridge can also produce school roll forecasts to assist schools and education service provision.
