Residents are being invited to have their say on the priorities for housing investment in East Dunbartonshire.
The Scottish Government allocates grant funding to all Scottish Councils to support the delivery of new build affordable homes. Affordable homes can include those built by either the Council or Housing Association partners for social rent, midmarket rent, shared equity or low cost home ownership.
To secure grant funding, all local authorities need to detail their plans for future housing provision in their Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP) each year and to submit this to the Scottish Government.
The SHIP sets out how investment in affordable housing will be targeted over the 5 year period 2021/22 to 2025/26, and outline how the Council and its partners will deliver these priorities
To ensure this year's SHIP truly reflects housing need and demand in East Dunbartonshire, and sets out the best housing mix in suitable locations, the Council is looking for residents' views on the draft SHIP.
As a key stakeholder, and resident of East Dunbartonshire your views are essential. We would therefore urge everyone to take part in the SHIP engagement as this will help shape future housing priorities within East Dunbartonshire.
The draft SHIP will be available for a two week period from 16 October until 30 October 2020 to provide feedback to the Council via the online questionnaire below.
Feedback and input from this will help inform development of the final Plan which will be submitted to the Scottish Government.
The outcomes of our engagement activity on developing our SHIP priorities is now available within the document section of the page.
