The Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) was a report that was produced to determine how much housing would be needed across the Leicester and Leicestershire Housing Market Area (HMA). 

The report was signed-off by all the Leicester and Leicestershire local planning authorities on 26 June 2014.

All the organisations agreed that the SHMA provided a suitable evidence base to inform individual Local Plans / Core Strategies.
