Rother Strategic Housing Research Project

2017 saw the start of a significant research project into the housing needs and housing stock condition across the district. A social research company, Opinion Research Services (ORS) were commissioned to undertake housing assessments and household questionnaires which took place during several months and were completed in July 2017. ORS have analysed the findings from these surveys which will used to feed into a strategic approach to affordable housing delivery and tackling private rented sector conditions over the coming years.
