2) Scoping Research - Source Data: All members reported issues with obtaining access to reliable source data. John reported that Pete had recently provided some useful links and would share these. John also stated that he had reached out to various groups including ONS and WC to obtain information and that these enquiries were ongoing. Other points of reference suggested during the meeting were Kew Gardens - National Archive and history.wilthire.gov.uk
3) Link Officer: Appears to still be absent/unattainable. Action: John to send note to Goergina Clampit – Dix (Done).
4) Housing Needs Survey:
Overall anticipated workload should be much reduced now WC has confirmed that reply paid envelops will be provided and that collection of the forms will not be necessary by Steering.
The question still remains though, as to whether or not to deliver the General Questionnaire at the same time or sequential to the Housing Needs Survey. More thought required on this and on overall co-ordintaion.
It was acknowledged that Pete was probably best qualified to take ownership of the Questionnaire going forward.
