Housing condition surveys
In November 2011 the Building Research Establishment (BRE) carried out an assessment of the condition of the private sector housing stock within the Cotswold district.
This work included a health impact assessment which looked at the effect on health of housing conditions and the costs of these. This work gives us a very clear picture of housing conditions by ward and census output area.
We hope to use the results to guide future policy and spending decisions and to feed in to the joint strategic needs assessment which all the Gloucestershire councils have to prepare with Gloucestershire NHS.
