Leigh on Mendip Housing Need Survey 2019
A survey to establish the housing need in our parish is being conducted in September. It is important that as many people as possible contribute.
A questionnaire has been delivered to every address in the parish for you to have your say.
The results of the survey will help Councillors to comment about planning applications and inform local planning policy. This could affect YOU, whether you have a specific housing need or even if you do not.
The survey can be returned using the stamped, addressed envelope or on-line (details are on the survey front page). If you need any help completing the survey or require a further copy please ring the Smart Communities Team on 01823 331222 or email email@example.com .
Completed surveys must be received by Monday 23rd September 2019
