Affordable Housing Review


The Housing Needs Survey report published after surveys and interviews in September 2010 is now available to read by clicking the link above. This report was prepared by the Rural Community Council of Essex (RCCE) following several discussions with Winstred Hundred Parish Council and surveys in each of the three communities within the Parish.  Parish Councillors have no access to the information contained on individual survey questionnaires.

A closed workshop will take place towards the end of March 2011 to give Councillors an opportunity to explore together the mass of data contained in the report and to decide whether they feel the recommendations made by RCCE are valid conclusions based on that data.

Unless the workshop throws up unforeseen problems the subject of Affordable Housing will be on the Agenda for the Parish Council meeting to be held at 19:30 on 12th April 2011 in Salcott Village Hall.   Following our usual practice there will be an opportunity then for members of the public to ask questions and comment.  The Council will then decide whether to support in principle the recommendations of the report.
