The Local Housing Needs Survey is now open

RACE & Sevenoaks District Council are working with Hever Parish Council to undertake a housing needs survey in the parish. The survey aims to gauge the need for affordable housing across all age groups. We’re also exploring if older homeowners need to downsize or require more suitable housing. Your input shapes housing solutions for everyone. Let’s ensure affordability for all stages of life!

All households in the Parish should have received a postcard about this.

You can use this link to complete the survey online

You can get a paper version of the survey from the Parish Clerk, Rachael Turner, by calling 07784 912645 or emailing: – a pre-paid envelope will be included to enable you to return your completed survey.
