So… what happens now?

We will keep the housing needs data anonymous and once a sufficient housing need has been identified, we will look to conduct a parish-wide housing needs survey.

This will result in an anonymous report being produced (no personal information is included in this). The report will state the number of homes needed (if any), sizes, and tenure types The results of this survey may be used as evidence to support planning applications for small affordable housing schemes to meet the local housing need.

In the event that a new development of affordable homes is built on a rural exception site. Priority will be given to applicants with the greatest local connection.

Your personal information is kept on file by the Rural Housing Enabler who, in the event that a scheme is developed, will keep you informed of progress, invite you to any meetings or events and help you through the allocations process. All personal information supplied by you on this form will be processed by the Rural Housing Enabler in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
