Have your say on a new political map for Stratford-on-Avon District Council. The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposals. A 10 week consultation on the proposals will run until 08 November 2021.
The Rural Housing Enabler for Warwickshire Rural Community Council (WRCC) supports rural communities in Stratford District to carry out local surveys of housing need. The purpose of these surveys has been, firstly, to determine the level of need for housing, both affordable and market and, secondly, to explore community opinion towards new housing development.
A survey can be stand-alone or undertaken to inform a Parish Plan or Neighbourhood Development Plan. The index of plans and surveys below provides information with regards to the current progress of housing needs surveys and plans. The second link provides an alphabetical list of housing needs surveys that have been adopted by parish councils.
Please contact Sarah Brooke-Taylor, Rural Housing Enabler at WRCC, for further information on how to do a local housing needs surveys and how to build "local needs" homes for local people. Telephone 01789 842182 or 01789 472611, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available on the WRCC website.
Private rented accommodation (rented direct from a private landlord or from a letting agency) provides an important housing function in the district.
The affordability, availability and suitability of privately rented properties vary across the District. Households who cannot access or afford suitable private rented and open market properties usually require affordable housing.
The District Council and its partners use information about the local private rented market to make informed decisions about housing and give appropriate housing advice.
