East Dunbartonshire residents are being offered the chance to share their views on the housing issues that matter most to them during a dedicated consultation.

For the next four weeks,people can complete the survey and make suggestions on the Local Housing Strategy, which will set out the vision for delivering new housing and housing services across East Dunbartonshire for the next five years (2022-27).

The survey is available on the Council website with the aim of identifying the housing priorities of local residents and communities.

This consultation is the first stage in developing a new Local Housing Strategy for the area, and will help the Council to better understand the main housing challenges faced by residents as well as their preferred solutions to overcome them.

Joint Council Leader Vaughan Moody, said, “It’s important that we hear from local residents and communities about the housing issues which are of most concern to them, and how they think we should focus our time, investment and services to address these. This will allow us and our partners to create a new plan and vision for housing that will best tackle these issues.”

The online survey is open now to all East Dunbartonshire residents on the consultation page of the Council website at www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk/lhs

As part of the Council's regular commitment to enabling as many people as possible to be involved in the consultation, residents who would prefer to complete the survey by telephone or receive a printed copy can request this by emailing Housing@eastdunbarton.gov.uk or calling 0300 123 4510.

Joint Council Leader Andrew Polson, added, “We want to hear from residents across East Dunbartonshire, of all ages and living in all types of housing. This is an opportunity for local people to have a voice in shaping the plan for our housing services and we’re keen to hear your views.”

The survey will run until 29th October and all responses will be confidential and anonymous.
