At our Community Consultations in 2016, a lack of affordable housing was identified as a key challenge to the sustainability of thriving communities in South West Mull and Iona. This was linked to the need to retain and attract working age individuals and families to live in this area.
In response to this key issue, South West Mull and Iona Development have commissioned Our Island Home – Rural Housing Scotland to carry out housing need surveys for South West Mull and for Iona. Please see the links below.
Anyone can fill in a survey – you don’t have to be in need of affordable housing yourself. This is an issue that affects us as a whole community as well as having an impact on individuals’ lives. If you know of anyone who lives outwith the area but would like to live and work here if affordable housing were available, please ask them to fill in a form too. The results of these surveys are a way of demonstrating housing need to funders and decision-makers and can be used to support affordable housing developments.
Closing date is 31st December 2017 – please don’t leave it too late.
