Residents from all parts of Preston have been invited to share their views on existing and future housing in the area to help inform the new local plan...

The Housing Need and Demand Survey (HNDS), which is also open to residents in Chorley as part of a joint approach by Preston City Council and Chorley Council, seeks to understand local views on the current housing market as well as future developments including the availability of affordable housing.

Residents will have until 28 June to answer the survey and share their views.

Councillor Matthew Brown, Leader of Preston City Council, said:

"As we strive to economically improve Preston and the surrounding area for all it is vital that a range of good quality and affordable housing is available for people to be able to lay down roots in Lancashire.

"This survey is important to help us understand how residents feel about the state of housing currently available where they live and whether there is the right mix of housing near to them.

"The results of this survey will help us gain a clearer picture of the housing needs in our area and will play an important role in future decision making. Therefore it's important we have as much input as possible from residents, the more people who respond to the survey the more meaningful the outcomes will be."

The survey will also be shared with other stakeholders including housing developers, registered/specialist providers as well as sales and letting agents to learn more from their experience of the housing market in the area.
