At the open meeting held at Northleigh Village Hall Devon Home Choice updated the Housing need figures for Farway, Northleigh and Southleigh. There are currently a total of 12 households on the Devon Home Choice register living or working in the three parishes.
Northleigh – 5 households resident
Southleigh – 1 household resident
Farway – 6 households, 5 resident and 1 working in parish
Devon Home Choice noted that not all of these households may wish to continue to live in the three parishes or may not have the local connection. However, the numbers have increased from 7 in the 2014 survey which could be down to increased publicity and awareness of the affordable housing project. None of the above households is included in the 2014 survey figures so there are a possible
3 further households which are in housing need across the 3 parishes giving a total of 15 housing need households.
