  • Enables local authorities to continually monitor their housing stock

  • Ability to filter housing data to identify specific dwelling categories

  • Ability to generate and export property lists and summary tables of interest over different geographical scales

  • Compliments the XCC and HHCC online tools

  • Generates improvement scenarios to assess potential reductions in energy use and carbon emissions

HSCD is available online on a demo or subscription basis.
