Meaford Council Looking at Afforable Housing Concerns

Meaford | by Bayshore News Staff  

Council received a presentation outlining some of the issues surrounding affordable housing within the municipality

Meaford Council was presented a report Monday night regarding the affordable housing situation within the munciplity.

Council received the report to gain information on the current situation and begin to develop a strategy. Later reports will allow Council to decide upon the best course of action.

One of the notable concerns was the discrepancy in what housing is available versus the price people can afford and the needs of those searching for housing.

There was also concern around being able to provide housing and supports for senior residence. As well as wanting to make the market attractive to youth.

Council looked at not only rental property numbers but also statistics regarding affordable home buying.

More reports will be tabled to Council and other stakeholders as the year progresses.
