I believe there is a local shortage affordable of single level 1-3 bedroom bungalows availability in the area which are much desired by first time buyers and particularly retired where stairs accessibility can be a problem. Local planning officials should try and encourage provisions in future housing developments to incorporate some if their is a demand in the area. New bungalow housing would save householders energy costs being properly insulated as much of the current housing stock may be poorly insulated, damp and require lots of renovation to bring them up to standard and un-affordable for majority of the local population with property house bidding well over the valuation prices. Can the council clarify if they will in future suggest to both private/social housing associations and developers a potential growing need for these types of houses.
