East Renfrewshire Local Housing Strategy Consultation

Closed 7 Dec 2022

Opened 12 Oct 2022

Overview

Welcome to this consultation which seeks your views on the draft vision, priorities and actions for the new East Renfrewshire Local Housing Strategy.

This consultation begins to set out our plan for improving homes, neighbourhoods, and the housing services provided across East Renfrewshire over the next five years.  It builds on the progress of the 2017-22 strategy and sets out the draft vision, priorities and actions that will form the basis of the 2023-28 East Renfrewshire Local Housing Strategy.

This LHS is being developed with the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK exit from the European Union, the war in Ukraine, and the cost-of-living crisis; all of which have had significant impacts on East Renfrewshire’s economy and communities.  It also comes at a time of an ambitious programme from Scottish Government aimed at increasing the number of and quality of homes, reducing carbon emissions and tackling homelessness head on. The Local Housing Strategy therefore comes at a crucial time and aims to be instrumental in improving outcomes for everyone across East Renfrewshire.

We have developed the draft vision and priorities for action along with our partners, using local evidence and feedback received through our previous consultation work with the public. Before we finalise the strategy, we would like to ask local people and everyone with an interest in housing in East Renfrewshire to give us their views again.

The consultation will run for 8 weeks from Wednesday 12 October to Wednedsday 7 December.

Following the consultation period we plan to finalise the Local Housing Strategy for formal approval by East Renfrewshire Council in Spring 2023.

Why your views matter

The views of the local community and stakeholders are critical in ensuring that the new LHS truly reflects the housing issues faced by local people and includes the right priorities and actions to address these issues.

In developing the LHS so far we have consulted with residents, communities and local stakeholders and we want to continue this to make sure we get it right.

The information you provide will be used by our team to inform the development of our local housing strategy. Further detail on how your data is managed and used can be found here
