HOUSING NEEDS ANALYSIS
As part of the Consultation Process in Spring 2017, all households were asked to complete a questionnaire if they would like to move within Goodrich over the next 5 years or whether they or their family living locally had a need for housing in the parish
ASSESSMENT OF DEVELOPMENT SITES
The criteria for the assessment of Development Sites has been developed by the NDP Team and is given below; this was formally approved by the Parish Council. This is based on the results of the Questionnaires and previous consultation, as well as professional input to identify the areas and options that could be considered.
