The new Rural Design Centre is bringing communities, researchers and businesses together to help solve rural issues – we’re working with a broad range of partners and you can find out more about us here: www.ruraldesigncentre.com.

We are interested in learning about housing issues and problems faced by people living in rural Northumberland communities and would like you to help us explore these further, helping to find new solutions which address these challenges, now and into the future.

Rural is defined as ‘within a population of less than 10,000 people’ so can include small towns.

If you are interested in getting involved in the project, the following questions are an opportunity for you to share your views and experiences. It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

We plan to do more research into these issues, and re-define them as challenges allowing us to investigate with others what successful solutions might look like. You will be able to find out more about this when we present these at an online event on 16th July 2020 .

Thank you very much for your time. We will use and anonymise your response only for our planning. Your answers are confidential and only for the purposes of the Rural Design Centre team.
