Rural housing schemes evaluation
These evaluations examine the impact that affordable housing schemes for local people have on the towns and villages in which they are built.
There are many challenges that need to be overcome in the rural parts of the district. These include:
- lack of movement of householders
- low volume of housing
- lack of services
- poor transport links
- difficulty engaging the community in some local areas
It is also largely due to high house prices in Uttlesford.
Our housing needs surveys have shown that it was more expensive to live in the rural areas.
The surveys suggest there was an increased need for subsidised housing especially in the much higher priced rural areas.
