Affordable Housing Needs Surveys

The Enabling Team at Mendip District Council carry out housing needs assessments in partnership with and on behalf of Parish Councils, the aim of these surveys is to determine if there is a rural housing need and then to gain a better understanding of the immediate and the future parish needs. As part of these surveys we can also understand parishioners opinions to potential future housing and identify other issues of importance or concern.

We ask a series of questions about current living situation, income and local connection to help identify housing needs in the Parish. The data gathered can also help inform future affordable housing in the area including; the tenure type i.e. rented or shared ownership and housing size this helps ensure that affordable housing meets local needs and requirements as much as possible.

Below are published Housing Needs Survey Reports, they contain the analysis and summary of the data gathered. Any personal details gathered through the survey process have been kept strictly confidential by Mendip District Council and the Enabling Team.
