Parish of Marshfield Affordable Housing Needs Survey 2018

The Housing Enabling Team at South Gloucestershire Council is working with Marshfield Parish Council to undertake a housing needs survey.


The survey will establish if there is a need for affordable housing in the parish and it will also help to identify

housing demand in the private market.


The survey is in two parts:

  • Part one- We would be grateful if every household in the parish would answer part one as this will provide background information on the community, its population and its housing profile.
  • Part two - Please complete part two if you fall within any of the following categories:
    1. If your household, or someone living in your household wants to move in the next five years and wants to stay living in the parish of Marshfield
    2. For people or households (such as family or friends) who have moved away from the parish of Marshfield and would like to return
    3. If you work in the parish of Marshfield and want to move to the parish


Please note that if more than one household living in the same home needs to move into separate accommodation, then each household must complete a separate survey.


This information will identify households who wish to move to more suitable accommodation within the parish in the next five years and who cannot afford to do so in the local housing market. If there is a need for affordable housing, consideration will be given to develop a rural affordable housing exception site if a suitable site can be found.


Paper copies of the survey have been delivered to every household in Marshfield. To complete the survey online you will need to enter the unique code which is printed on the paper copy you have received. This number does not identify you and is only used to identify duplicate responses.

Summary of Results



Consultation Topic
  • Democracy and participation
  • Housing issues
  • Planning policy & strategy
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
