New Housing Needs Survey

As you will be aware, West Chiltington PC has been working on producing a Neighbourhood Plan for the Parish. A key part of this is identifying where housing should be located.

Two sites have been identified. One at Steele Close has consent for 15 homes, 14 of which will be affordable. A further site at the current Moto Di Marino Garage has been identified as a site for a block of up to 16 flats for the elderly (if it becomes available for development in the future). There is considerable pressure both from Horsham District Council and local developers for more sites to be allocated in the Parish. We want to hear from you what you believe your real housing needs will be, both now and in the future. Please remember that if you identify a need then you will also help us by suggesting where housing could be located. Our neighbouring parishes are building significant numbers of houses all of which share services with us so it is important that we get this right.

Please complete this survey online by going to: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NPHousingSurvey

There are 10 short questions and it will take only a few minutes to complete. Alternatively you can collect a hard copy from the Parish Office in Church Street, or Post Office Stores, Church Street or Nisa Stores, Haglands Lane. The results will form part of the ‘Objectively Assessed Need’ requirement of the Neighbourhood Plan and we need as much input from residents as possible, so please encourage your friends and neighbours to complete this survey as well. The survey will be available until 31st March 2018.
