Local people with a connection to Tideswell are being urged to take part in an online survey to tell us their housing issues.
For many people buying a home in the Peak District can be a real challenge and local shops and services, which help to keep our communities sustainable and vibrant, are put under pressure as the population changes.
The District Council’s corporate priorities are to enable new homes for local people and support the local economy. We can deliver on these priorities by working in partnership with Tideswell Parish Council.
We have a strong track record of building small developments of sensitively planned homes within the Peak District National Park Authority. You can see recent examples in Tideswell itself, as well as in, Youlgreave, Stoney Middleton, Elton, Calver and Bakewell which are all occupied by people with a strong local connection to those villages and towns.
The District Council is concerned that there is a growing need to build affordable homes for local people in Tideswell. However, before any options are considered, we need the community to help us identify what the housing need is. We’re calling on local residents to tell us about their housing issues through this survey form.
We are particularly keen to hear from young people interested in setting up a home for the first time, families needing a bigger home, people struggling in high cost rented homes and older people who may have a need to downsize.
- Please fill out our short online survey to establish a need
- or call Isabel Frenzel, the District Council’s Rural Housing Enabler, on 01629 761256
The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 28 April 2017.
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond.
