Housing need and demand assessment / household survey 2019
We have a statutory responsibility to prepare housing and planning policies, which involves an understanding of the requirements of local communities. An update to our housing evidence base is now needed, and we will be collecting this through a household survey.
We have employed independent housing research consultancy, arc4 to collect the information we need from people currently living in all types of housing across the borough. A household survey is being sent to a random selection of households across the borough and its findings together with other data sources will help inform the Council about the amount and type of housing required by different households over the coming years.
