The Leicester and Leicestershire local authorities and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) commissioned a Housing and Economic Development Needs Assessment (HEDNA) to assess future housing needs, the scale of future economic growth and the quantity of land and floorspace required for B-class economic development uses between 2011 and 2031/36.  The results were published in January 2017.

The Housing and Economic Development Needs Assessment (HEDNA) looked at a wealth of evidence, including population, household and economic growth projections, to assess the need for housing and employment land over a period of 20 years.

The HEDNA provided an evidence base to inform the preparation of statutory local plans by individual local planning authorities. It also provided evidence for the non-statutory Strategic Growth Plan for Leicester and Leicestershire.
