Hull City Council is asking residents to share their views on the future of housing in Hull.
A survey has been launched which asks the public what type of housing development they would prefer the authority to build, based on the needs of the city’s most vulnerable people.
This could include bungalows or sheltered extra-care housing complexes such as Redwood Glades, or could see assistive technology fitted into existing homes.
Councillor Gwen Lunn, portfolio holder for adult services, said: “As we grow older, we tend to become vulnerable and often need a bit of extra care.
“We want our residents to live healthy and independent lives for as long as possible and choosing where and how we live can be a challenge for ourselves and our families.
“That is why the type of housing accommodation we plan to build should be shaped by the needs of Hull’s residents and that is why your views are so important to us.”
The team would like to hear from older residents with or without support needs, adults with a physical, sensory or learning disabilities, adults with mental health problems, dementia or autistic spectrum disorder.
The views will then be used to inform the city’s future housing strategy for older and vulnerable residents, as well as shaping the council’s long-term priorities.
