Local Housing Needs Consultation - Blairgowrie

Closes 30 Nov 2019

Opened 10 Sep 2019

Overview

Rural Housing Scotland, on behalf of Perth and Kinross Council, are looking to find out what kind of affordable housing is needed in Blairgowrie.

Rural Housing Scotland are a charity which aims to help create more affordable housing options within rural communities.

Why We Are Consulting

From renting a council house to building your own home, there is a huge range of housing solutions possible in Blairgowrie - we want your help to find out which you’re interested in and which you think would help meet local housing need and demand in the town.

As well as the main housing options like buying a home or renting a home there are a number of new and alternative solutions which could be developed in Blairgowrie such as community led housing, co-housing, self build or mutual home ownership cooperatives.

We hope that by consulting with the Blairgowrie community, we will be able to find out what the need is for different housing options and help guide the development of affordable housing which meets the needs and aspirations of local people.

Rural Housing Scotland will lead this consultation throughout September and October 2019 in the Blairgowrie area with a public event and an online consultation.

On Monday 30th September Rural Housing Scotland will be at the Blairgowrie Community Campus from 4pm to 9pm. Here they will host an exhibition of housing options and provide an opportunity for people to find out more about affordable housing; general and particular needs; low cost rent and ownership; self and custom build; leasing and repair options.

Questionnaires will be distributed to participants and enable local people to set out their housing preferences, to highlight their current housing and living circumstances.

For further information please contact Rural Housing Scotland at derek@ruralhousingscotland.org or use the contact details provided on this consultation page.
