Rushden East survey

East Northamptonshire Council and the consortium for Rushden East, are carrying out a survey to provide residents with the opportunity to give their views on what housing should be provided as part of the proposed development. ENC is working with ORS consultants to deliver the postal survey to 4,000 households in Rushden, Irthlingborough, Raunds, Stanwick and Higham Ferrers, which will be distributed in the next week. The survey is being sent to a random sample of households in order to ensure that the results are robust and representative of the views of the wider area.  

In addition to this, a survey will be sent to applicants on ENC's housing register, who have indicated a preference for housing in the identified area.

Households will receive a letter with the survey and can return this via freepost by the specified date. The surveys will be collated and will be the basis of a report that will outline what affordable and specialist housing is required as part of the planning application and inform officers response to the application.

The final report will be published in due course on ENC's website for members of the public to view.

If you have any questions about the Rushden East survey, please contact Dez Tanser - Housing Strategy and Enabling Officer.
