Housing Land Audit

The anticipated demand for housing is set out in the Local Housing Strategy . As required by Scottish Planning Policy, planning authorities are required  to demonstrate that there is a sufficient supply of effective land to meet anticipated housing requirements in their area for at least five years. This can be achieved through the preparation of a housing land audit.

The Comhairle has prepared and published the Outer Hebrides Housing Land Audit 2021  (Opens in a new window or downloads a file) with interactive maps along with a document which details additional relevant site information. (658.9kB) (Opens in a new window or downloads a file)
