We did

All of the responses gathered will be analysed and will help to inform the creation of a new Local Housing Strategy for the next five years.

Results updated 24 Jan 2023

One of the final steps towards updating our LHS was to share a Draft Consultative version of the LHS between August and September 2022 to ask local people, organisations, and housing stakeholders whether the vision and priorities for action are the right ones for Perth and Kinross.

The final consultation ended on 9th September 2022, with a total of 194 responses received.

Some further key themes emerged from the responses. This included:

  • The need to address the stigma attached to social housing
  • The need to increase the supply of social rented housing
  • The need to address the cost of living, including rents and bills
  • The specific housing needs of those in rural areas, including the impact of second homes
  • The need to address affordability and condition in the private rented sector

You can see an overview of the consultation results below.



The Local Housing Strategy (LHS) for Perth and Kinross is being updated, and we want you to tell us your thoughts on housing in the area.

The LHS sets out how we and our partners will address housing issues and demand in our area over the next five years. Our LHS for 2016-21 is coming to an end, and so a new strategy is now being drafted.

The new LHS will provide our vision for delivering housing across Perth and Kinross beween 2022-27, as well as our priorities for action over that period of time.

Why your views matter

We want to to make sure the new strategy reflects the views of local people and communities, and so we're asking you to share your views on the housing issues that matter to you most. Your suggestions will be used to help shape the new LHS.

To do this we are asking you to complete this consultation which should take no more than a few minutes. This is an important opportunity for everyone in our local communities to have a voice in influencing the future of housing services and investment in Perth and Kinross, and we are very keen to hear your views.  

What happens next

Your views will be gathered and will help shape our updated Local Housing Strategy whch is due to be submitted to the Scottish Government in 2022.
