The Council of the Isles of Scilly’s Housing Delivery Project has launched an online public consultation on the plans and progress made to date for the Self and Custom Build housing scheme at Ennor Farm, Old Town. The consultation runs from Monday 30 November until Monday 14 December at 5pm.
The plans, FAQs and other information relating to the scheme are available at the following link, along with details on how to provide feedback: https://www.scilly.gov.uk/community-safety/housing-delivery/public-consultation-self-custom-build-project
Robert Francis, Chairman of Council said: “we are excited that plans for the first of our proposed housing sites are progressing, specifically the Self and Custom Build scheme in Old Town. This will help to address the Council’s Corporate Plan objective to “lead on the delivery of 30 new homes to support the future needs of the islands” by providing serviced plots to meet the demand for self and custom build opportunities on the islands.”
Tim Dean, Lead Member for Housing, comment:“we are delighted to bring the first of a series of housing sites forward for public consultation. We have had to deal with reallocation of staff and delays to site survey work due to the COVID-19 pandemic but are now in a position to begin to address the demands for self and custom builds on Scilly. There is still work to do but we will be consulting closely with the people on the self and custom build register, along with other stakeholders, to take a great step towards meeting the housing needs of the islands. We would love to hear your comments, so please email us with your feedback at Livescilly@scilly.gov.uk.”
