Residents of Alnwick and Denwick are being reminded to respond to a major survey of the area’s housing needs before next week’s deadline.

The Alnwick and Denwick Housing Needs Survey is being undertaken by consultants ARC4 on behalf of Alnwick Town Council and Northumberland County Council.

It was identified as necessary in the emerging Alnwick & Denwick Neighbourhood Plan.

The information will be used to identify the different tenures (eg, tenancy or owner-occupancy), sizes and types of housing, including affordable, residents will need over the next five to 10 years.

Paper questionnaires and prepaid return envelopes are being sent to every household in the parishes of Alnwick and Denwick. Residents can complete their questionnaires online if they prefer.

For further information or for assistance, contact ARC4 free on 0800 612 9133 or the town council on 01665 602574.

Each returned questionnaire will be entered into a prize draw to win cash prizes of £250, £100 or £50. Questionnaires need to be returned to ARC4 by Friday, June 17.
