A housing needs survey was carried out in Stanton on the Wolds, Nottinghamshire in June 2020. Questionnaires were delivered to 180 households in the parish of Stanton on the Wolds and an electronic survey was available as an alternative method of response.
Results showed that there is a requirement for 7 new homes, in order to enable local people to be suitably housed within their community.
These new homes could be developed on an ‘infill site’ or alternatively on a rural exception site, should one become available. Subject to local authority planning policy, some open market homes could be used to cross-subsidise the costs of building homes for affordable tenures.
Alternatively, the affordable homes could be provided as part of a larger scale development through s106 provision subject to local authority planning policy. Open market housing tenures on a proposed s106 development could be informed by the open market preferences found in this report again subject to local authority planning policies.
