RESIDENTS across Whitby and district have only two weeks left to have their say on housing needs now and in the future.
A massive survey to assess housing needs across the county sees all local housing authorities joining forces to create the biggest piece of housing research ever undertaken in the region.
The survey has been sent to around 160,000 households across the county – every home in rural areas and a sample in the larger towns and takes around 20 minutes to complete.
Those who send the form back will be entered into a cash prize draw.
The findings will support each authority’s Local Development Framework – the development plan for each area used to guide future housing developments.
The survey which looks at all aspects of housing – including affordable housing, housing for older people and supported housing for vulnerable people as well as the ‘open’ housing market of homes for sale is totally confidential – and although it collects financial information, this information is used to gain a better understanding of housing issues affecting residents and will not identify individuals or households.
Anyone – whether they have received a survey form or not - is encouraged to take part by using the open link to the online survey at: http://housingneedsurvey-nyshp.co.uk Surveys should be returned by 28 February.
