Lichfield and Burntwood residents asked for their views on new housing

People living in Lichfield and Burntwood are being asked to give their views on housing needs for the region.

An online and telephone survey is being carried out to help Lichfield District Council shape its plans for the type of homes needing to be built in the area between now and 2026.

Councillor Neil Roberts, Lichfield District Council’s cabinet member for development services, said: “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, added: “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.”

“If you prefer to fill in the survey online, just visit from November 7.”
