Housing surveys coming soon


Rother District Council (RDC) has notified that a social research company, Opinion Research Services, is carrying out surveys about housing and stock conditions across the district from January to March 2017.

The advice states : “If you are contacted, we would encourage you to become involved. Each and every survey response will help shape the delivery of affordable housing and tackle inadequate housing stock over the coming years.”

“Ensuring affordable housing is available to meet the district’s growing needs and ensuring that existing housing, particularly for those who rent privately, is at an acceptable standard, are key challenges for the council.

“It is vital that we understand the needs of our residents in order to deliver housing and housing services which meet these challenges into the future. In order to understand housing needs the council is undertaking a large scale survey involving our residents. The surveys are being undertaken as the first phase of a larger project that will see the development of strategic plans for affordable housing development and private sector housing improvements”.
