Please note that the Parish Council have no responsibility for maintenance or administration of the properties in Rams Farm Road nor do we have any control over the allocation of this Housing.
However, in the interests of ensuring that this scheme is run fairly in the interests of local people, we have asked residents of Rams Farm Road to inform us if they are intending to vacate their property so that we can try to ensure all villagers are aware of any impending vacancy, by advertising it around the Village and on this website.
Additionally, you can register your interest with the Parish Council and we will attempt to inform you IF we become aware of any potential vacancies but this is entirely reliant on existing Rams Farm Road occupants passing this information to us (which they have no obligation to do). This does not remove the need to be registered with Colchester Borough Council as being in need of housing.
Please do not wait until a property becomes available to register as the timescales involved may mean that you would miss out on being considered if and when any property becomes available.
If you want to be considered for any of the houses that become available at Rams Farm Road Fordham please read the Notices below.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING SURVEY NOVEMBER 2012
Following a request from local villagers for consideration of more affordable housing in the village the Council sought the assistance of the Rural Community Council of Essex and a questionnaire was delivered to all householders regarding this matter. The responses showed that there was a need for four new units 2x 1 bedroom units; 1 x 2 bedroom units; 1 x 3 bedroom units and that these should all be available as rented accomodation. The Council will now be working with the RCCE to pursue this matter further but as it involves finding suitable land in the Village and finding a Housing Association to work with who have available funds for the project it is likely to be a lengthy process.
