Devon’s Real Housing Needs – How many new homes are REALLY needed in Devon? Important report by @cpredevon to be launched at Tiverton meeting on 12th October

Posted on

housingCPRE Devon says: Have you noticed how many new houses are being built everywhere in Devon? Do we need so many? What is the REAL underlying need? Brand new CPRE Devon commissioned research, cuts a swathe through official figures and, for the first time, reveals the truth about Devon’s real housing needs.

How many new homes are planned for your community and where? How many have already been built? How many are genuinely affordable? Who are the planned new houses actually for?

To objectively assess the situation, we commissioned an independent study undertaken by a leading research firm, ORS, (Opinion Research Services) and the evidence based findings are produced in a comprehensive report, to be launched at our seminar. The data includes housing projections, targets, costs and tenure, numbers planned and population trends across the entire county. The data should prove invaluable to anybody faced with an unwanted proposal in their community.

Please join us for this important opportunity to find out what the evidence says – How many new homes are really needed in Devon?

Presentations:

‘Why Government Housing Policy is Wrong for Devon’ – Dr Phillip Bratby

Devon Housing Needs Evidence – Report of Findings – Mr Jonathan Lee, ORS

Followed by questions and answers from the floor. Admission by ticket only. £5, to include refreshments. Book your place here (by the way, no need to pay £5 upfront, you can choose ‘pay at the door’ option)

CPRE Devon to produce report on housing needs, to help challenges to major development proposals

CPRE (Council for Preservation of Rural England) Devon has commissioned an independent research firm to analyse all the statistics, facts and figures to help us understand what Devon’s housing needs really are.  This comprehensive report will be completed later this Spring.  They believe that the information which it will provide will be invaluable to those who may wish to challenge major new housing proposals in their communities. I will report when it’s published.
