Local housing strategy

Have your say on the future of housing in South Ayrshire!

Housing plays a vital part in all our lives. Having somewhere to stay that is safe and warm is one of the most basic needs we have. Without good housing, improvements in other important aspects of life, such as health, education and community are more difficult if not impossible to achieve. South Ayrshire Council is committed to ensuring as far as possible that people are able to access good quality, affordable housing that meets their needs and their circumstances.

In order to achieve this we’re developing our Local Housing Strategy for 2017 to 2022, and we want to know your views on the housing issues that matter to you.

We want to know what YOU think about our strategy to:

  • Improve housing advice and support
  • Improve the quality of housing and neighbourhoods
  • Support the development of new homes

We’re holding two special consultation events in Ayr and Girvan. Come along and give your views on our draft strategy. Everyone is welcome.

Drop-in anytime between 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Wednesday 28 September 2016

Drop-in anytime between 6:00pm to 8:00pm

To arrange transport to the events or to give your views, call Ross Morris on 01292 612206 or email

A draft version of the strategy is now available for download. If you can’t make it to a drop in event, you can give us your feedback by emailing or by calling Ross Morris on 01292 612206.

You can also now let us know what you think by completing our short online survey

Housing need and demand assessment

In order to develop the LHS a Housing Need and Demand Assessment (HNDA) was produced and submitted to the Centre for Housing Market Analysis in June 2015. The HNDA provides information and statistics about housing issues within South Ayrshire such as homelessness, housing need, key housing market drivers and current housing stock. View the current HNDA document.




We would love to hear your opinions on any of the topics discussed. If you would like to share your views then please don’t hesitate to phone or email us at:
