Affordable Housing for Key Workers
Cheshire East Council has launched a campaign to meet the housing needs of key workers such as emergency services staff.
Key workers such as firefighters, the police, health workers social workers and teachers are being invited to feedback information about their housing needs to the Council.
The new Council survey will focus on addressing the problems public services sometimes face retaining key staff, specifically those who provide essential services to our communities.
The Council wants to hear the views of key workers, currently working in Cheshire East and who have a household income of no more than £50,000.
Councillor Ainsley Arnold, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member in charge of housing and planning, said: "We recognise that we need to help people who provide essential public services to our community but who find it difficult to access the housing market.
"This key worker survey will provide us with essential information about their housing needs. We would like to thank all our partner organisations who help us shape our approach to affordable housing for key workers and look forward to working with them in the future."
