Right Home Right Place – Have your say!

Is your current home right for your family? Do you need somewhere larger but can’t find anything suitable or affordable in the area? Are you renting or living with parents, but would like somewhere of your own? Even if your home is suitable at the moment, will it be right for your family in the future?

Whatever your current housing situation, Shropshire Council wants to know.

Right Home, Right Place is a council-led initiative to identify housing need across Shropshire. They are currently running a Housing Needs survey in Llanymynech and Pant, and are asking all local residents to take part.

Having the right mix of housing is important to every town and village, and enabling local people to stay in their area helps to ensure communities thrive, now and into the future – so everyone in Llanymynech and Pant is encouraged to share their current and future housing needs with Shropshire Council via their online survey.

Speaking about the survey, Edward West, Shropshire Council’s Planning Policy & Strategy Manager, said: “Throughout Shropshire, as with the rest of the country, we’re seeing a growing gap between the average salary and the average house price, which is making it very difficult for people to stay in the areas they’ve grown up in, gone to school, have family in or now work in.

“Our job is to help identify what type of housing people need, and where it’s needed most. Even if people don’t currently have any housing needs, we still need to know – so we do strongly encourage all residents to get involved and take the survey. It’s an invaluable chance to have their say on the future housing in their town or parish.”

The survey should only take a few minutes to complete, and your answers could directly influence future housing provision in the village and help to ensure you have greater access to the type of home you need for your family.
