East Ayrshire seeking views on future housing need

East Ayrshire seeking views on future housing need

A survey about the housing needs and future aspirations of local households has been launched by East Ayrshire Council.

The survey, which is open to all residents, will allow the council to better understand the housing circumstances and needs of our communities. The results will help shape plans for new housing and housing services, helping to ensure that future needs are met.

The online survey will be supported by 400 telephone interviews to be carried out by Research Resource with households across the area. Telephone interviews will start on Monday 19 February and will continue over a period of six weeks.

Councillor Jim McMahon, spokesperson for housing, transport and communities, said: “The demographics of our communities change over time, it is therefore essential that we determine housing needs and demand so that we can plan for the future and ensure that resources are focused on delivering what is needed and when.

“I think it goes without saying, that this is a huge task and I hope that in addition to the telephone interviews that will be carried out by the team from Research Resource, our communities will take a bit of time to fill in the online survey.”
