Newborough Neighbourhood Development Plan Village Housing Survey Results

 There were 144 Survey forms completed, a very pleasing response rate of nearly 40%.

Of the 3 alternative Housing strategies put forward the choices expressed were :

A ( Criteria based )                     58

B ( Development Boundary)     36

C ( Specific sites)                       50

All residents were given the option to choose up to 3 of their most favoured individual sites ( from 15) and the preferences for each numbered site were :

  1. 49
  2. 28
  3. 39
  4. 3
  5. 60
  6. 46
  7. 22
  8. 19
  9. 6
  10. 12
  11. 22
  12. 21
  13. 13
  14. 16
  15. 26


Note that if Strategy B had proved to be the most popular, which clearly it was not, there would have been a small majority for the looser development boundary alternative. Also, some respondents chose not to answer some of the later sections of the questionnaire.

The Steering Group is now preparing a revised Housing Policy which will be based on the wishes of the village as expressed in the above results. This will be shared with the village as part of the next Consultation process, which will begin as soon as possible. There is still work to be done to further improve the overall Draft Plan and so the target date is as early as possible in October, hopefully in six or seven weeks’ time. The Village will be advised in due course.

Thank you to all those who completed the Survey.
