Consulting with local residents
We hold consultation events in the local area as part of the planning process.
The consultation process
Planning is an important step in the process of providing new homes. We see affordable housing as key to sustaining our rural communities, because it enables village schools, shops and pubs to remain open.
We believe strongly that the people who live in the villages and towns where we want to build new homes should have a chance to speak to us about our plans, and see how our proposed homes will look.
Consultations (in person and online) give us a chance to hear concerns from local people about our proposed designs and layout. We also get a chance to answer residents’ questions and learn about local issues we might otherwise not be aware of. We often make changes to our plans following these consultation events.
