Shetland Islands Council asks for views on Local Housing Strategy
Shetland residents and communities are being asked for their views on the housing issues that matter most to help inform and shape Shetland Islands Council’s Local Housing Strategy for the next five years.
The strategy aims to set a new plan for homes and communities in Shetland, setting out the priorities by the council and partners to tackle the main housing issues, and links to the ‘Housing to 2040’ vision for Scotland, launched by the Scottish Government earlier this year.
The housing survey has been launched to gather views on what is important locally, what the housing challenges are and what actions would make a difference.
Respondents can choose to provide contact details to be involved in future discussions also.
The online survey can be found here.
Councillor Alastair Cooper, chair of the Council’s Development Committee, said: “With the current pressures in the housing market there has never been a more important time for the community of Shetland to have their say in shaping the future of local housing. This is an important opportunity for residents to have a voice in shaping the strategy for housing services and investment in Shetland over the next five years.”
