2022-2027 strategy consultation

We've launched a consultation on the local housing strategy which will help shape priorities for improving homes and the housing services provided over the next five years.

The strategy applies to all housing in East Renfrewshire including owner occupiers and private rented as well as social housing. Key themes, identified by our Housing Services, covering priority issues for the consultation are included and the team want the gather views on these from the local community. The themes cover:

  • availability of affordable homes
  • diversity of homes
  • homelessness
  • quality of homes
  • improving carbon footprint in housing
  • future opportunities for housing

Take a look at the online consultation and give us your views.

Anyone who would prefer to fill in a paper version of the survey, or would like to discuss over the phone, can email housingserviceimprovement@eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk or call 07769 280351.
