Moray residents asked for voice on housing needs

Moray Council has launched a survey to gather information on the housing needs and future aspirations of local households.

The survey will allow the council to better understand current housing circumstances and ensure a range of housing options are delivered in future. The results will help plan for new housing and housing services, making sure the needs of all residents and communities are met.

Residents of all ages and living in all types of housing are encouraged to give their views and ensure a cross-section of the community is heard from.

The online survey is open to all Moray residents and 400 phone interviews will be carried out with households across the area. Phone interviews started on Monday (15 August 2022) and will continue for four weeks. The survey is being carried out by professional market research company, Research Resource.

Survey is key to understanding needs

Moray Council’s Head of Housing and Property, Edward Thomas, said: “We really appreciated residents taking the time to complete this survey to ensure we have a range of voices from the community.

“We always want to make sure our planning for the future is based on evidence of what the community looks like now and meet the needs of the future and this survey plays a key part on that understanding.”

All survey responses will be for research purposes only and it will not be possible to identify individual tenants from the responses. Research Resource are registered under the Data Protection Act and all responses will be completely confidential.

The online survey takes around 10-15 minutes to complete and can be found online here.
