Housing needs survey

Start of consultation: 07 Jan 2020
End of consultation: 17 Feb 2020


Earlier this year the council published its corporate plan and within it made a clear commitment to ensuring that “people have a place to call home and can live with independence”. Following publication of the draft Island Planning Strategy for consultation earlier in 2019, there was, and indeed continues to be, significant concern expressed about the number of homes being planned for the Island.

As part of the Island planning strategy process, the Isle of Wight Council is working with parish and town councils to undertake an Island-wide housing needs survey. This will capture views on current and future housing needs of residents, and also help us understand more about what is affordable (to buy and rent). This information will then be used to inform the council’s planning and housing policies in the future.

Consultation Activity:
The survey can be accessed from and will run until 17 February 2020.
