Locality funding was provided in 2018 to secure a door-to-door Housing Need Survey which took place in July with the results received in August. This was to be supplemented by Locality’s technical support team to undertake a desktop researched Housing Needs Assessment, the draft of which was received in late October and is currently being amended.
Our Housing Needs Survey was shared with Solihull Council in December 2018 and was deemed sound and robust. At the parish council’s EGM on 7 January 2019, members approved the Housing Needs Survey results which you can read here.
An independent assessment of our Local Green Spaces was undertaken in October 2018 funded by Locality, which will be included in our Neighbourhood Plan. Our draft submission plan currently contains 26 policies on housing, the natural environment, built environment, local community, local economy and transport and three aspirations, referred to as projects, on road safety, removing street sign clutter, traffic management and public transport. Our revised timetable is as follows:
