HOUSING NEEDS OF THE VILLAGE TO BE ASSESSED
An independent Housing Needs Survey of Egmanton is to be carried out to find out the true extent of local housing need inthe parish. Midlands Rural Housing has prepared a questionnaire to be delivered to households in the parish in October.
The returned questionnaires will enable a report to be written which will identify whether or not the housing needs, particularly the affordable housing needs, of local people are being met. The survey is being carried out at the request of the Parish Council and Newark and Sherwood District Council.
Please could as many households as possible complete and return the questionnaire (a freepost envelope is provided), either to indicate a housing need or to pass comment on parish life and housing issues. All the information is confidential and individual replies will not be seen by the Parish Council, the District Councilor any other organisation.
An independent, commissioned survey will provide clear evidence of local housing need and is essential to help maintain and protect the village and ensure local needs are identified. The results will feed into future planning negotiations and will look to accurately target any future housing development in the parish.
Please look out for the survey arriving through your letter box and rest assured that the Parish Council will be fully consulted on the results and, if required, on any possible options for solutions. If you have any queries please contact
A book exchange has been started in the Defibrillator box (the old phone box) on the village green.
Drop any used books off and take others in exchange.
