Housing Needs Survey and Second Consultation

Housing Needs Survey and Second Consultation

Housing and Land Development Survey


The survey was delivered to all households in the parish with the October issue of mAGpie, with an envelope for its return. For households outside the immediate village this envelope was stamped as well in order to facilitate its return. Initially the forms were to be returned by October 30th, but in the event the date was extended by another month.

The questionnaire could be completed in two ways – on the paper form provided, or online with the use of SurveyMonkey. This was automatically forwarded to the Neighbourhood Plan group for analysis.

You may download the survey form that was sent out to all households with its accompanying letter here;




All the returned questionnaires were painstakingly analysed, with grateful thanks to Ian Darbyshire, and a summary of the findings can be viewed here;

This enabled the results to be analysed in time for the Group to work
on the topics for  the further public consultation in a second Community Forum in April 2017.


Results of Second Consultation

The second consultation was held over two days and enabled as many people to participate as possible.  Twenty two possible sites within and around the edges of the village had been identified, the owners contacted, and those who wished to put forward their sites had submitted them for an independent assessment by an approved consultant.

Twelve sites were assessed, and two were then withdrawn from further consideration. The remaining ten were submitted for comment at the two open days;     Sites for consideration

The comments were all recorded and analysed, and the results can be seen below;
