AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THE PARISH 20/06/2014 : The Housing Needs Survey documents are now being distributed to homes throughout the parish. Any individual who may be feel that they could qualify for such housing is urged to complete and return the survey form in the pre-paid envelope as soon as possible. It would also be helpful if even those not currently interested or envisaging a need in the near future could return the forms, marked with a comment that 'they are not presently looking for any such accommodation' This will help to identify those without any interest and those who just have not yet returned the form, for whatever reason 23/11/2017 : The Housing Needs Survey conducted in 2014 has resulted in a proven need for a small number of housing units in Lealholm and subsequent discussions and considerations by all parties involved in the provision of a suitable development have resulted in a consensus that a development of 6 to 8 units is viable.
In order to gain feedback and comment from parish residents an open day has been arranged on the 23rd November in the Ley Hall Lealholm between 13.30 and 18.30pm. This is a 'Red Line' consultation (meaning that there will not yet be any detail of proposed housing types etc.) and is an opportunity for local residents to ask questions and voice any concerns they may have. The government 'Community Led Housing' initiative will also be outlined in order to decide if this would be a more advantageous route to consider.
