A Housing Needs Survey asks residents about their views on affordable housing. It finds out whether there are residents in
“housing need”. If there are we can work with the Parish
Council to develop a small scheme of affordable housing.
Affordable housing is either social rent, at rents below
market values, or shared ownership (part buy-part rent).
When affordable housing is developed in rural villages, it is
only open to people in housing need who have local connections, and it remains affordable for future generations
A Housing Needs Survey is the chance for you to have your say about affordable housing
Even if you are not in housing need
yourself, you may know of people who are. It is getting more
and more difficult for people to be able to buy properties in
the villages which they grew up in.
Please look out for your Housing Needs Survey which will be
delivered with your Parish Council newsletter during October.
