Angus residents asked to have say on local housing strategy

Angus Council logoAngus Council has opened its draft local housing strategy for 2017-2022 for consultation.

The local housing strategy identifies where links between housing and other services can help achieve wider social outcomes. It also contributes to the effective integration of health and social care, setting out the contribution housing can make in supporting these areas through the design and delivery of housing and housing-related services that are capable of responding to the needs of individuals.

The strategy sets out three priority outcomes and the actions which help to achieve the council’s vision to create places that people are proud to call home.

The three outcomes are:

  1. Increase the supply of good quality, affordable housing across all tenures
  2. People can access a range of housing options and related services to meet their need
  3. Improve stock condition across all tenures, ensuring the council tackles fuel poverty and energy efficiency and contributes toward climate change targets.
  4. Local residents are encouraged to complete a survey and tell the council if the strategy addresses the issues that matter most to them and if they think it will guide the council towards achieving the outcomes.

    The survey is split into five sections – Introduction and local context; housing supply and place-making; access to housing; sustainable housing; and local priorities and will take about ten minutes to complete.
