Housing needs survey

Working to deliver affordable housing

We work in partnership with Cambridgeshire ACRE and a number of Housing Associations to deliver affordable housing for villages in South Cambridgeshire.

The Housing Needs Survey complements the Housing Register, by adding to our understanding of housing need in rural communities.

The Housing Needs Survey is a key part of the evidence base required for gaining planning permission for exception sites.  

The survey questionnaire is posted to every address in the village. 

If you are interested in having a housing needs survey undertaken, please contact our Housing Development Officer in the first instance. 

Please note that there is a charge for undertaking this work through Cambridgeshire ACRE.
