Housing Needs Survey

The Council is aware that a lack of affordable and suitable housing is an issue for many communities, which can lead to local people being forced to move away. To assess whether or not this is a problem in Stratford-upon-Avon parish, we are carrying out a survey to identify the types and sizes of homes that local people need. The survey is for everyone, not just people in housing need.

The Town Hall, situated in the very heart of this delightful market town is a very beautiful building, housing not only the Town Council but providing a romantic venue for civil weddings.

This is indeed an impressive and memorable room to hold a civil ceremony. A red carpeted dais at one end of the room provides a focal point for the registrar to conduct the wedding and the room can be extended to incorporate the Committee Room which will allow for over 100 seated guests in theatre style.
