A £100 hamper can be won by completing a new online housing survey to assess the needs of people across the county.

South Northants Council (SNC) has cut costs by inviting views online rather than by post and those that take part will have a shot at winning the hamper of local produce.

The Housing Needs Survey, which will now be completed by all parishes at the same time but every few years, will ‘assess the need for all housing tenures from open market housing to shared ownership and affordable rental homes’.

Mary Clarke, leader of SNC, said: “Households are being asked to take part in a survey that will give up-to-date information about local housing circumstances and aspirations.

“This information will be used to help the council develop its housing and planning policies to best meet these needs, including whether there is a local need for affordable housing in parishes and, if so, of what size and type.

“So it is more important than ever that we get your community’s views on their housing needs.”

Arrangements can be made for those who have no access to the internet. To take part click here.

Completed surveys will be accepted up to and including Monday November 3.
