Housing crisis public meeting and drop-in sessions

Three public events have been scheduled in response to Councillors' decision to declare a housing crisis in at Full Council in January 2022. You can find full details for these events below:

Public meeting on the housing crisis

Cllr Tim Dean, Lead Member for Housing and Corporate Estate will be hosting a public meeting on the housing crisis to answer your questions on this issue. Other Councillors will also be in attendance as well as our Strategic Director of Place, Economy & Environment. If you have a question you would like answered at the event, please submit it to us no later than Thursday, 24 February 2022 by emailing housing@scilly.gov.uk or by handing it in to our customer hubs at the Library or Carn Gwaval.

Public meeting on the housing crisis

Time: Tuesday 1 March 2022, 5pm to 6pm
Venue: Wesleyan Chapel, St Mary’s

Please understand that we will not be able to discuss individual circumstances in this forum and must respect the privacy of all residents.

Drop-in surgeries to discuss individual housing concerns

We understand that many issues relating to housing are not appropriate for a public meeting but they are no less important to you. Cllr Tim Dean has therefore arranged drop-in surgeries for anyone to talk to him about housing concerns they have.

On 8 February 2022, Cllr Dean wrote to all residents to raise awareness of Councillors' declaration of a housing crisis and ask anyone who may be able to help, or simply contribute to the debate to come forward. Click here to read the letter in full
