21 September 2019 - Kingston Housing Needs Survey


Please take part


Kingston Parish Council has commissioned Action in Rural Sussex to undertake a survey in order to better understand the nature and scale of housing needs in the parish.


We know anecdotally that residents are concerned about affordable housing and housing suitable for older people and those with additional needs but need more accurate information before the Council can consider any further action.


The survey is confidential and will be distributed in September/October. An independent analysis of the results will be provided in a report for the Council.


Contact Chris Moulder Vice Chair KPC if you have queries about the survey
