Residents of Alderley Edge should have received a Housing Needs Survey in the post over the last couple of days seeking information on current housing needs in the area and how this may change in the future.
Councillor Craig Browne said "I would like to assure everyone that this is a legitimate communication from Cheshire East Council and encourage you to complete the survey by the deadline of Friday 14th October.
"Cheshire East Council is considering making a planning application for an affordable housing development for local people, but needs to establish the level of demand before progressing."
If the response shows there is a need, this information will inform a planning application for an affordable housing development for local people. The report will also help Alderley Edge Parish Council influence future planning application to help ensure local needs are met.
Cheshire East Council, with the support of Alderley Edge Parish Council, have commissioned Cheshire Community Action (a local charity specialising in supporting local communities to influence development) to carry out the survey immediately.
They are particularly keen to hear from people whose home does not meet their current needs or likely needs in the future.
Once response per household is require.
If possible you are requested to complete the survey online. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AEHNS2022
