Housing Needs Assessment 2013Key research questionsWhat additional housing for local people is required in the parish over the next 5 years?What are residents’ views about the scale of house-building in the-future?

Housing Needs Assessment 2013Key findingsHouseholds likely to move = 64**Households likely to stay in the parish = 37*New households likely to form = 37New households likely to stay within the parish = 12*Local need* = 37+12 = 49Local supply** = 64Will the 64 vacancies meet the requirements of the 49 households?

Factors are affordability, size and type special needs. 5 owner occupied bungalows (one specialised); 3 owner occupied flats (all specialised); 3 market rented flats (one specialised); 2 affordable flats; 6 affordable houses (two specialised).An estimated 19 homes are needed over the next 5 years to meet local needs. 6 homes need to be specialised.
