2023/24 Council Housing Survey

Closes 23 Dec 2022

Opened 1 Nov 2022

Overview

Every year we ask Council tenants for their views on how their rent should be spent. We use the responses to help us plan our investment priorities and Council housing budget for the following year.  This year, with the cost of living crisis on everyone’s mind, we’d like to find out more the financial challenges you’re facing and how best to support you.  

The cost of living crisis is also making it more expensive to run our housing services.  It’s now costing more to bring our Council homes up to meet statutory energy efficiency standards and to build new affordable homes. If we’re not going to increase rents then we’ll not be able to achieve all our plans and will have to prioritise investment. You can read more about this in the Housing Revenue Account Budget Strategy 2023/24 report that was discussed at the Housing, Homelessness and Fair Work Committee on 29 September 2022. 

The consultation runs until 23 December 2022. We look forward to reading your thoughts and feedback.

Thank you.
