Housing needs surveys and reports

Local Parish Housing Needs Surveys

Local surveys provide valuable data on the level of housing need.

Parish and other housing need surveys:

  • Provide vital information about the housing need in an area
  • Help in planning new developments
  • Help to show the need for affordable housing
  • Help show the level of community support for new development.
  • Parish surveys can help to produce a Parish Plan, which sets out a vision for a parish.

We encourage all parishes to consider conducting a parish survey.
