Pitstone Parish Council would like to find out whether there is any need for “low cost housing” in our community to help local people who are struggling to stay in the parish due to the high cost of housing. These may include people who need to be near close relatives to care for them, or need the care of someone living in the parish.
The council is also aware that young people may be finding it increasingly difficult to access homes of their own, and older people finding it hard to find suitable homes to ‘downsize’ into.
To gauge the extent of local need for “low cost housing”, and any particular types of need, we would like all interested Pitstone residents to complete a short survey and tell us their stories. The results will then help the parish council to understand what needs exist and to investigate possible solutions. The survey can be completed online at http://pitstone.co.uk/housing-survey-2017/, or you can complete the form which will shortly be delivered to each home inside your next edition of Pitstone Parish Post, and return to 9 Warwick Road, Pitstone, LU7 9FE or email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 5 March 2017.
