Term Definition
Objectively assessed housing need

Objectively assessed housing need. The Government have not provided a definition of housing need but a useful one is 'the housing that households are willing and able to buy or rent, either from their own resources or with assistance from the state’. This covers affordable housing as well as market housing. It is also worth noting that in Government guidance ’need’ is synonymous with ‘demand’.
