Methodology on assessing local housing need - guidance document (for developers)
The following guidance has been provided to enable developers or those working on behalf of developers to undertake a Housing Needs Survey in line with the approach as per the Settlements and Countryside Local Plan. As the council operates a periodic renewal program, this approach should be discussed with the Council at an early stage in the planning process in order to avoid any duplication.
Methodology for the undertaking of HNAs and accompanying reports
Past and present residents of a number of parishes in the District have been invited to complete a survey about their housing circumstances and needs.
Letters inviting residents to fill out the survey have been sent out to all households within the parishes listed below. The letters contain a reference number that needs to be entered in order to validate the survey. The survey is also open to anyone that has a close local connection to each parish through work, close family, or historic residence.
Former residents of the listed parishes, households that have more than one occupier with a housing need (therefore wishing to form a different household), or anyone who has misplaced their letter can contact us for a reference number.
