Residents across Shropshire urged to complete housing questionnaire

Related topics: Housing

Almost 20,000 randomly selected residents across Shropshire are being urged to complete a questionnaire to help understand the housing needs across the county.

Shropshire Council’s housing needs survey is being undertaken to help establish and understand the condition of existing private and social housing stock, and the need for additional open market and affordable housing.

The survey seeks to find out about the needs Shropshire’s households may have in their current home, and the types of new homes that are required for Shropshire’s existing and future households.

Dean Carroll, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for physical infrastructure, said:-

“Shropshire Council wants to ensure that its housing strategy reflects Shropshire residents’ current and future housing needs.

“To help us do this we want to find out about the needs you may have in your current home, as well as the types of new homes that will be needed for existing and future households in our communities.  Collecting this information from you is important to help us inform our strategies and polices to best meet these needs in years to come.

“I urge everyone who has received this letter to take part in the survey and support this important work.”

Closing date for completion of the questionnaire, with letters posted out to residents, is Thursday 30 June 2022.
