Housing needs survey

Houses.A housing needs survey is now being conducted in one of the northern parishes of the borough with the help of Aislably Parish Council. Questionnaires are being delivered to all households in Aislaby parish to see if there is a need for affordable homes, either to rent or to buy, for local people.


When housing needs surveys are undertaken, it is vital that all households (regardless of the age of occupants) respond by completing the housing needs questionnaires. Without this evidence of what local people want, affordable housing schemes, which could help keep open community services such as village schools, pubs and shops, cannot be built. Households that are not within the geographical area but still have a strong local connection to the parish (for example those who were born in the area or who have parents living there) can also be included in the survey if they request a questionnaire.


Other parishes in the North York Moors National Park have undertaken similar surveys, which have shown a demand for affordable homes for local people. This has resulted in affordable housing schemes being built in villages such as Danby, Castleton, Hinderwell and Glaisdale. These homes are now all occupied with people that have local connections to the area.


If anyone with a local connection to the Aislaby parish is in housing need and would like to complete a questionnaire, they can contact our Rural Housing Enabler, Colin Huby, email: tel: 01723 232323 ext 2945 or request a questionnaire by post by writing to Rural Housing Enabler, Housing Strategy Team, Scarborough Borough Council, Town Hall, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough, YO11 2HG.
