Rural Housing Needs Surveys



These rural housing need surveys can be used to help in identifying the need for housing in the different parishes of the Borough.  They show both market housing and affordable housing needs.


For market housing needs, these surveys can be used with other market research. 


For affordable housing needs, please speak with our Housing Policy Officer, because the surveys show only need and not new housing required (re-lets and other information needs to also be taken into account).
