January 2020 – Housing Needs Survey and Drop In Events

On January 11th the MACKPLAN team will be distributing to every household within our area a Housing Needs Survey. This is survey is aimed at providing us with more information on the current and future housing requirements of residents.

We appreciate that a similar survey was completed in 2017 but we have been strongly advised by West Devon Borough Council to undertake a new completely independent survey. So this survey has been drawn up by an independent body and will be assessed by them. The completed forms will be confidential and will not be seen by members of the Neighbourhood Planning team or the Parish Council.

With the forms, there will be a covering letter of explanation on why it is required. We would be most grateful if you could complete and return the forms it will help us in gathering the necessary evidence for the potential Neighbourhood Plan.

The MACKPLAN team will also be holding drop-in events on the 25th January between 1pm and 4pm. Members of the team will be available to answers your questions on the Housing Needs Survey and on the progress, we are making on the Neighbourhood Plan.  Your ideas and comments are vital to the neighbourhood planning process and will be thoroughly welcomed so please do drop in on 25 Jan.

The drop-in events will be at the following locations:

  • Milton Abbot Village Hall
  • Kelly Village Hall
  • The ‘Old Smithy’ Chillaton
