Overview

Welcome to this consultation which seeks your views on the draft vision, priorities and actions for the new Perth & Kinross Local Housing Strategy (LHS).

Housing plays a vital role in meeting the needs of local people, communities and the economy.  Giving people the right housing for them, in the right place, at the right cost, vastly improves their life chances.

We are required by the Scottish Government to have an LHS, which is reviewed and updated every five years. The LHS sets out a plan of action, investment and partnership working which will deliver our identified local housing priorities.

The new LHS will cover the period 2022-27, and it sets out our vision for housing, and housing-related services, in Perth and Kinross as well as the outcomes that we want to achieve for local people.

Following initial consultation with stakeholders last year, we have now developed a draft LHS vision, and priorities for action with our partners.

Before the strategy for 2022-27 is finalised we want to make sure that local people, communities and stakeholders have their say on whether these priorities will make a positive difference to meeting housing need in Perth and Kinross.

The LHS is an ambitious plan, setting out what homes and communities should look and feel like in Perth and Kinross over the next five years. This vision includes delivering more homes, creating great places, providing better housing choices and delivering homes which are affordable, energy efficient and meet the individual needs of each household.

Following this consultation we plan to finalise the Local Housing Strategy for formal approval by Perth & Kinross Council in early 2023.

Why your views matter

The views of the local community and stakeholders are crucial in ensuring that the new LHS truly reflects the housing issues faced by local people, and includes the correct priorities and actions to address these issues. 

In developing the LHS we have consulted with residents, communities and local stakeholders from an early stage, and want to continue that process to make sure we get it right.
