This is a helpful survey by Fife Council where you can have your say on future housing in Fife. There are sections that ask about a full range of disability issues including adaptation and being a carer. There are also boxes where you can put in information you think is pertinent. Representatives from DPHS(F) will be attending public sessions in Kirkcaldy, Dunfermline and Cupar to put over the case for a variety of housing types including an aspirational target of 10% new builds to be fully wheelchair accessible due to the extreme shortage of this house type.
Fife Council: Local Housing Strategy 2015 - 2020
The Fife Housing Partnership is developing a new Local Housing Strategy for 2015-2020 to be in place by April 2015.
The aim of the strategy is ‘to provide housing choices for people in Fife’.
This will build on the successes of two previous five-year strategies, particularly in delivering new affordable housing, addressing homelessness and reducing fuel poverty…..but we know we need to do more.
To help us achieve our aim we would like to find out your views on housing in Fife – the things you like, don’t like, and any suggestions on how we can make housing better.
Your views matter – by working together we can focus on some of the main housing and related issues to achieve real improvement within our communities.
