Frequently Asked Questions

The information obtained from this survey will inform the Wolverley and Cookley  Neighbourhood Plan, which the Parish  Council are developing in partnership with the community and Wyre Forest District Council  well as the Wyre Forest District Council Local Plan. The Neighbourhood Plan will guide decisions made regarding future development in the parish and is written following research into the various aspects of the plan, which includes housing. The responses from the housing questionnaire will therefore help to establish the requirement for housing within the parish  for the foreseeable future.

The purpose of the questionnaire is to identify current and future housing need for people who have a local connection to the parish. That is why we ask whether people live, work and/or have family in the parish, how many people live within the household, the sort of accommodation you live in and whether you think you or part of your household is likely to move within the next 10 years.

We have requested this information as it helps us to determine the ability of people living in Upper Arley parish to afford housing in the parish. This helps in determining what sort of housing, needs to be developed to fulfil the requirements of households within the parish, whether that is open market, private rented, part buy part rent or social rented accommodation.
