Alnwick housing needs examined in survey

People living in a Northumberland town have been asked to help build a picture of future housing needs.

The county council wants to know what kind of homes will be needed in the Alnwick area, and where.

The information received will be collated with other pieces of research and presented to key decision makers at a special meeting.

Residents are invited to contact the council with their views, and also attend the meeting on 14 September.

Housing issues such as affordability, development and quality will all be discussed.

Councillor Roger Styring, deputy leader of Northumberland County Council, said: "Work is in progress to try and plan ahead to ensure there is enough housing, of the right type, size and tenure and in the right location, to meet the current and future housing needs of residents in this area.

"The meeting will provide the opportunity to hear what key policy makers and delivery agencies have to say about housing in the area and to let them know the views of the community."
