WICK AND ABSON Affordable Housing Needs Survey

The Housing Enabling Team at South Gloucestershire Council is working with Wick and Abson 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 Wick and Abson
    2. For people or households (such as family or friends) who have moved away from the parish of Wick and Abson and would like to return
    3. If you work in the parish of Wick and Abson 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.


The consultation has now closed. The consultation report is available to download here.


Paper copies of the survey have been delivered to every household in Wick and Abson. 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.


If you have not received a copy through the post and wish to complete the online survey please contact 01454 865354  or email HousingEnabling@southglos.gov.uk.


The survey is anonymous and all information provided will be confidential. Any personal information that you have supplied will be held by South Gloucestershire Council in accordance with the Data Protection Act. No personal information that could identify your household will be shared with the Parish Council or anyone else.



A community consultation event is being held in the Village Hall (Manor Road, Wick, BS30 5RG) on Tuesday 23 May 2017. The consultation event will be starting at 7pm.

Representatives from South Gloucestershire Council and the Parish Council will be available to answer any questions you may have on the delivery of affordable homes in Wick and Abson.

This consultation has now closed and our consultation report is now available.

Consultation Topic Housing issues
Geographical area
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.
