Bandleyside Parish Housing Needs Survey March 2010

In March 2010 Cumbria Rural Housing Trust, commissioned by Eden District Council and supported by Bandleyside Parish Council and the Heart of Eden Community Plan, conducted a Housing Needs Survey in Appleby-in-Westmorland Parish. The survey followed the launch of the Heart of Eden Community Plan and was distributed with a copy of the Executive Summary. The purpose of the survey was to identify the need for affordable housing and to fulfil one of the action plans laid out in the Community Plan. This report details the information derived from the survey responses.
