Housing needs survey

It is five years since Charnwood BC with the help of a rural housing association carried out a survey of parish housing needs. The Parish Council approved the survey. The previous one was in 2014, so this will update it. All the information is confidential to the housing team at Charnwood and when they join it to their waiting list, will tell us how many we might need in the coming years.

Please be considerate in summer and avoid bonfires when others are eating outside ... no bonfires at all on the allotments until September, and use advice from Environmental Health at Charnwood at other times.
