Housing needs surveys

What kind of housing is needed in Fairburn or Stutton cum Hazlewood? Do you have a local connection to these parishes and are struggling to get a home that is suitable and affordable?

We are carrying out Housing Need Surveys in the parishes of Fairburn and Stutton cum Hazlewood. The survey is to find out if there is a need for affordable housing and the type and mix of homes that are required.

The Council will be writing to every household in these parishes to ask them to take part in the housing need survey - but the survey is also open to anyone who has a local connection to the parish and is in housing need.

You can request a hard copy of the survey by contacting Selby’s Rural Housing Enabler, Lily McQuade on 01757 292 318 or complete the surveys online. The closing date for responses is Friday 27 September.

Lead executive member with responsibility for housing, health and culture, Cllr Chris Pearson, commented, “It is important that we work with communities to gather local information and identify where there is a need for local affordable homes for those with a local connection to the parish.

“Housing demand is growing across the district so it’s important that we do all we can to make sure that more homes are delivered. Not only is the delivery of new homes important for our residents and our businesses but it’s essential for the future success of the district by making it a great place to live.”
