Who wouldn’t want to live in Comrie?
> 299 Comrie households, 32 businesses, and 114 aspiring residents responded to last September’s Housing Needs Survey
The survey explored other cost of living issues associated with housing needs, and the report highlights a number of themes that will likely feature in the consultation surrounding the imminent PKC-sponsored ‘Community Action Plan’.
In summary, the report finds that
“Comrie, in common with many rural areas in Scotland, has a significant shortage of affordable housing which is negatively impacting the community and local businesses. Residents are leaving the area to find housing and young socially active people are unable to move into the area. This is breaking up family units and undermining the viability of the local school, services, businesses and community organisations.”
“The evidence from the surveys supports the creation of a housing strategy to explore building new homes,
provide self-build sites and identify opportunities to renovate existing buildings for re-use. This strategy
should look to identify a range of sites, tenures and house types.”
