Local Housing Strategy Survey

Local Housing Strategy Survey
25 September 2020

This week sees the release of the mid-point review consultation of the Local Housing Strategy 2017 – 2022.

A survey has been launched to help us review and understand the local priorities and targets for the future. Click here for the online survey.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to host face to face consultation, instead we will host two online events where more information on our proposals will be provided.

The dates of the two virtual events are:

  • 19:30 on Wednesday 30 September 2020.
  • 19:30 on Tuesday 6 October 2020.

Anyone who wishes to attend one of these sessions should contact Housing Services by email at housing@orkney.gov.uk or by calling 01856873535 and asking for Housing Services by 17:00 on Monday 28 September 2020 for the first meeting and Monday 5 September for the second meeting. These events will be run through Microsoft Teams, and therefore we require an email address from participants to allow them to join in.

Frances Troup, Head of Housing, Homelessness and Schoolcare Accommodation Services said: “Your views are important to us and we are keen to ensure you are able to contribute to this local strategy.

“If you feel more information is required to enable you to complete the survey or to request a copy of the survey, please contact the Housing Service on 01856 873535. We look forward to receiving your views.”

The consultation period will run for 4 weeks with a closure date of Sunday 11 October 2020.
