Complete your Housing Needs Survey on line 

Dear Resident

West Devon Borough Council is working with Parish Councils and Neighbourhood planning groups to identify the housing requirements of local people and would be grateful for your help.  This is particularly important if your parish is looking to develop a Neighbourhood plan.  This forms part of the evidence required when looking at plans and policies to shape your local area.

Households in North Tawton are being asked to answer a few questions to provide up to date information about local housing requirements.  This information will help us to identify whether there is a need to plan for new development as well as helping to shape plans and policies.  This will also tell us the amount and type of housing which may be required. 

The survey will only take around 10 minutes to complete and we would really appreciate you taking the time to respond.  All of the information provided will be held securely by the Council and will not be passed on to any 3rd parties or marketing organisations.

The survey is available on line, the paper copy is enclosed and further copies can be made available from West Devon Borough Council by calling 01822 813722.  We understand that more than one household may live within one property for a number of reasons, ie couple living with parents wanting their first home, so please complete one survey per household. Paper copies can be returned to the Spar Shop, Post Office and Town Council office in North Tawton.  The closing date for the submission of the surveys is 3rd November 2014.

Once the results have been collated a report will be sent to the Parish Council for comments and can then be included on the website.

If you are aware of anyone who has moved away from the Parish but would like to return we would also like to hear from them.  They can access this survey as above.

Once again thank you for taking the time to complete this questionnaire.
