Dorset Council Housing Strategy Consultation – Have your say and complete survey

Dorset Council Housing Strategy Consultation – Have your say and complete the survey (closing date 02 Oct 2023)

The residents of Dorset are being urged to have their say about the future of housing.
Having launched five weeks ago the Housing Strategy Consultation is now more than halfway through.
Residents who do take part, and tell us what’s important to them, will have the opportunity to influence the council’s approach to housing over the next five years.
The Housing Strategy will not be produced until the consultation and engagement process comes to an end on 2nd October 2023.
It’s quick and easy to take part and should only take a few minutes. There’s also an evidence-based document alongside the questions, which provides a picture of the current housing climate in Dorset.  
There are four key objectives proposed for the strategy.  These are:  Housing Need, Housing Supply, Housing Standards, and Prevention of Homelessness. 
Lead member for Housing Councillor Graham Carr-Jones said;
“We’ve been encouraged by the responses so far, they’ve been wide-ranging, informative, and passionate. We will consider each response as part of this process. I would urge individuals, families, businesses, and organisations to complete the consultation in the next few weeks and help us Home In On Housing.
The strategy will include both new and existing housing, as well as how the council plans to respond to housing issues in Dorset. It’s not just about the development of new housing although it dovetails with our local plan.
Whilst we’re grateful to the more than 1300 people who have responded so far, we would encourage those who haven’t taken part to do so. This will help to provide us with a greater insight into what is more important to our residents.”
