Help us understand your housing needs - take the survey.

Published on Wednesday, 19th August 2020

We are asking for your views to gain an up-to-date picture of the housing circumstances and aspirations of local people and help develop housing and planning policies to best meet local people’s needs in the coming years.

Maldon District Council is currently working with a company called Iceni, who are carrying out an important and confidential Local Housing Needs study, of all types of housing within the area.

A random sample of households from across the District are being asked to take part in a survey and will be sent a form to return in the freepost envelope.  The information will be used to provide an up-to-date picture of the housing circumstances and aspirations of local people and help develop housing and planning policies to best meet local people’s needs in the coming years.

Although survey forms will be sent at random, anyone can respond to this confidential  survey by completing it online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MJF3T2F.

We are interested in getting a full range of views, from home owners as well as those who rent from a Housing Association or a private landlord. Whether you are planning to move  house or not, the information is important, as it will help to give a balanced view of housing in the area.

The data is being collected and analysed on behalf of the District Council by consultants Iceni Projects. All of the information you give will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose of this survey.

The Council will not see any of your individual replies, nor will any of the information you give be passed on to any other agency or market research organisation.

For full details of how the Council and Iceni will use your data please see our Privacy Statements at https://www.maldon.gov.uk/terms and https://www.iceniprojects.com/privacy-notice

If you need help with any of the questions or want to discuss the questionnaire, please telephone Justin Gardner on the free phone number: 0800 470 1025.

Please see the FAQs which may also answer any questions you may have.
