Dorset Council has launched The Housing Strategy Consultation which is your chance to influence the council’s approach to housing over the next five years. The consultation is primarily a questionnaire, with some space for free text, it’s anticipated it will take just minutes to complete.

Key issues such as housing need, supply, and standards are some of the issues highlighted. The following video provides a bit more detail about the consultation questionnaire.

Lead member for Housing Councillor Graham Carr-Jones said;

“The housing strategy is for and about the residents of Dorset. Dorset Council does not want to produce a strategy without collaborating with the people it is about and the people it is for.

Our residents’ feedback is as important as ever and when we’ve consulted in the past we have been encouraged by the response.

The consultation is for everyone, individuals, families, organisations, people of all ages and backgrounds.”
