5. Local Context and Evidence

5.1 The LHS should provide a brief description of the local authority area, its location, links with neighbouring authorities, urban/rural split, main population areas (housing market areas ( HMAs) and/or Sub HMAs), regeneration areas and any other key features and/or constraints that may influence the strategy.

5.2 The LHS should contain a short summary of the key findings coming from the HNDA and other local evidence and intelligence on which the development of the LHS is based. There should be a clear link between this evidence base and the priorities that inform the agreed outcomes and actions.

5.3 A short explanation of the process chosen by the local authority to help decide on the approach to be taken to address identified priorities should be included in the LHS, for example, the use of option appraisals. However, it is not necessary to include any detail of the process itself.
