Are there people in Georgeham Parish unable to rent or buy a home?
Have people had to move away from the parish to find an affordable home?

The Parish Council needs to update the information on housing need in Georgeham Parish as well as canvassing the opinions of local residents.

The best way to identify the exact requirements is to carry out a Parish Housing Needs Survey.

In Georgeham Parish we will soon be posting a survey form to every home in the parish.

It is really important that as many households as possible complete and return the form so that the Parish Council can be given as comprehensive picture as possible of housing need. The figures obtained will help them to plan for the future and ensure that the correct number and size of homes are built in the parish for local people.

The survey is being administered by the Rural Housing Enabler at Devon Communities Together, which is an independent organisation. They will process the information and all personal details will remain confidential. No individual will be able to be identified from the survey report.

If you know someone who has moved from Georgeham Parish because they cannot afford accommodation then they can also complete the form. Extra forms can be obtained from Janice Alexander at Devon Communities Together on 01392 248919 Ext 7122 or email janice@devoncommunities.org.uk Anyone needing any help with the form should also contact Janice for assistance.

If you believe you are in need of affordable housing, you should register with Devon Home Choice at www.devonhomechoice.com
