Local affordable housing needs surveys
North Kesteven is a predominantly rural district with much of its population living in rural areas. Rural housing need can often be hidden as people may want to remain within their local village, but because there are very limited opportunities to get an affordable home, they do not register their needs with the Local Authority. North Kesteven District Council undertakes and commissions housing need research at the local village level to assess the extent of housing need. Where a local housing need is identified, the Council will explore the opportunities to provide additional affordable housing.
