Introduction

There are currently an estimated 118,900 properties in Plymouth (Valuation Office Agency 2017). When compared to the national average, the city has less detached houses and more terraced houses and flats. It also has smaller homes and less large properties (4+ bedrooms) than average. In comparison to the UK and much of the South West, Plymouth has relatively low levels of owner occupancy and higher levels of private and social renting. More information on housing and the future housing needs of the city can be found in the Plymouth Report.

The Plymouth Plan is Plymouth’s single, integrated strategic plan owned by Plymouth City Council and its partners. This is shortly to be integrated with the Joint Local Plan, a joint plan between Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon which looks at every aspect of how we want our cities, towns and villages to look and feel over the next 20 years.
