THE deadline for responses to the Department of Social Care housing review consultation has been extended by one week and will close on Friday, June 15.
The purpose of the consultation exercise is to invite comments on the information and potential options identified within housing review and is open to those who are interested. The extension follows representations from local authorities who, following the recent local elections, want to ensure there is sufficient time for appropriate engagement from newly elected members. There have been more than 850 submissions to date. The department has produced a survey with which to gauge public views on the options identified. You can access this via the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DSCHousingReview.

The comments should be submitted via the online survey or in writing, by post or email to: consulthousingreview.dsc(at)gov.im or Housing Review Consultation, Department of Social Care, 4th Floor, Markwell House, Market Street, Douglas, IM1 2RZ.
