Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the housing survey.  The survey was part of a wider research project to help us understand more about the need for accessible and adaptable homes in the city.  A report to the Council’s Housing, Homelessness and Fair Work Committee gives a summary of the research work.  The report summarises the recommendations and notes the key areas of work to be taken forward.



Edinburgh residents of all ages and living in all types of housing are invited to take part in a survey about accessible housing. The survey is part of a project the Council is doing to help us understand more about the need for accessible and adaptable homes now and in the future.

Your feedback will help the Council to understand more about the number of households in Edinburgh who may need housing which is designed or adapted to meet health, disability and frailty needs and support independent living.

The survey results will give us additional information about current accessible homes across the City and the number that will be needed in the future. This will help to inform future housing plans.

If you would like the survey in another format such as Braille, large print or translation, please contact the Interpretation and Translation Service on 0131 200 2000 or email its@edinburgh.gov.uk quoting reference 21-7211.
