Can you help?
Lichfield District Council is calling on its residents to share their views about their housing needs through an online and telephone survey.
The answers will help the council to shape its plans for the district, such as how many and what type of new homes need to be built between now and 2026.
Councillor Neil Roberts, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Development Services, commented: “So our plans for the district are based on what local people need, we need to know what housing issues they face. It is a chance for our residents to help us to make sure our plans are right for the future of our district.”
To make sure it gets enough responses to the questions, the council has employed NEMS – a market research company - to conduct a telephone survey in early November.
The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete and all the answers will be anonymous.
Cllr Ian Pritchard, Cabinet Member for Housing, Health and Environmental Protection, said: “The answers to our survey will also inform our future housing strategy, which sets out our housing priorities and how we will work in partnership to meet local housing needs.”
The council is reminding its residents of some basic safety tips when responding to a telephone survey. This includes never giving out bank details, information about your home’s security, and when you are likely to be at home during the day.
“If you prefer to fill in the survey online, just visit www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/housingsurvey from early November,” added Cllr Pritchard.
