The housing shortage has become a common topic of conversation across the country. A sharp decline in new home construction over the last 20 years, coupled with changing demographics and economic trends, have caused a housing crunch. New Hampshire is not immune to these shifts. Statewide the population is growing and getting older, the average household size is declining, and the number of available homes is simply not enough to meet the current or future demand.
While there are no easy answers to the current housing shortage, the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) provides data on housing and demographics so that each municipality can start a conversation about local solutions.
The complete RHNA Report and Appendix documents are available at the Rockingham Planning Commission website: www.therpc.org/RHNA. If you have any comments or questions about the RHNA you can ask them from this website as well. You will also find a slideshow and video of the presentation to municipal officials held on January 11, 2023 to preview the RHNA.
