Fylde Council is undertaking a Housing Survey to help provide an understanding of affordable housing need in Fylde over the next 5 years. A group of people of particular interest are new households seeking a place of their own.
These might be young people seeking a place of their own for the first time or families living with friends or relatives. A household can consist of one person or more. Some of these households may be eligible for low-cost home ownership such as shared ownership or discounted sale prices offered by housebuilders.
The Council urges anyone who is thinking of setting up home for the first time, either alone or with someone else, to take part in the survey.
Some households may have received a postal questionnaire already and the person responding should fill in the part of the survey applicable to new households on their behalf at section F. If no postal questionnaire has been received a new household can participate directly using the online survey using a PC tablet or smartphone at: www.tinyurl.com/fylde
Anyone taking part in the survey can opt into a draw to win one of three £100 prizes. The survey will be available from 17th January 2022 and will close in the week beginning 13th February 2022.
The more responses received, the more accurate the study will be, so the Council strongly urges individuals to participate either by post or online, and encourage others to do so, especially if they are in housing need or living in unsuitable housing.
The Council has provided a helpline for assistance with any of the questions or to discuss the questionnaire, on freephone 0800 6440017.
