Housing Needs Survey 2017
The Leicestershire Rural Housing Group is guiding the work of Midlands Rural Housing (MRH) to assess and meet the housing needs of people in the villages of Leicestershire. Partners are focused on delivering affordable homes for local people and having a positive impact on our rural areas. The Group is a dedicated formal partnership between the County Council, six rural District and Borough Councils (including Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council) and three Housing Associations who fund enabling work in Leicestershire to investigate housing needs and bring forward affordable housing schemes where they are needed. The Group also includes non funding organisations such as the Rural Community Council, National Housing Federation and the Homes & Communities Agency.
In 2016, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council (H&BBC) instructed MRH to investigate the local housing needs of the residents of Sutton Cheney Parish, Leicestershire. This formed part of a rolling 5 year programme of Housing Needs Surveys that H&BBC have to understand the housing needs of its rural communities. MRH worked with Sutton Cheney Parish Council to agree and arrange the Housing Needs Survey of the whole Parish.
