Highland Local Housing Strategy Survey

We are preparing a new Local Housing Strategy which will set out how along with partners we will deliver housing and housing services over the next 5 years (2023 to 2028).

To build the new strategy, we must set a new vision for homes and communities and agree priorities for action to tackle the main housing issues locally.

The new Local Housing Strategy will detail our plan for addressing the housing challenges facing local communities including:

  • increasing the range of housing options to meet need
  • developing successful places which are connected to transport, services and jobs
  • tackling and reducing homelessness
  • improving housing affordability
  • supporting people with particular needs to live independently and well
  • improving the energy efficiency of homes and tackling climate change
  • improving the quality and condition of existing homes.

To ensure the Local Housing Strategy reflects the view of local residents, a survey will run until 30 September 2022. It asks local people to share their views on the housing issues that matters most in their community and how they feel resources, investment and services should be targeted to address these issues.

All Highland residents are urged to participate in the survey which should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. All survey responses will be for research purposes only and it will not be possible to identify individual households from the responses.

This is a good opportunity for local people and communities to have a voice in shaping the new Highland Local Housing Strategy.
