Answering the Housing Crisis

Posted on: Friday 24 February 2023

Next week, councillors on the Healthier Communities committee will scrutinise the wicked issues creating a national and local housing crisis and review the actions of the council and partners to address the fallout.

What would be your solutions or challenges to the housing crisis?

Some issues:

  • Demand outstripping supply
  • Rising house prices
  • A lack of affordable good quality housing and social rented properties
  • Current cost of living pressures and a widening affordability gap
  • Rising private rents and an increase in no fault evictions
  • Fewer private landlords as current trend is to sell properties
