Council wants your views on housing

ROTHERHAM Council has launched a new survey asking for views in setting housing priorities.

RMBC said the housing strategy consultation aimed to identify key priorities for the next three years.

Housing issues include:

High quality energy efficient housing

* Affordable housing to meet local needs

* Bringing empty homes back into use

* Investing in existing homes

* Supporting people to live independently

* Providing more homes in Rotherham town centre

* Making sure Rotherham's communities benefit from housing development

Resident’s responses will be treated confidentially and the deadline to complete the survey is January 21.

Cllr Amy Brookes, cabinet member for Housing, said: “Rotherham Council has big ambitions for housing in the borough and this latest consultation will ensure we continue to deliver what residents want to see.

“From major building projects to making existing homes more energy efficient as we work towards a more sustainable future, this consultation will help ensure we have the right priorities for the next three years.

“We need as many people as possible to participate and tell us what matters most to them so we can produce a strategy that has a lasting and positive impact on the lives of everyone in the borough.”

The completed new strategy will be available to view on the council website from May 2022.
