North Coast Regional District is looking for your contribution towards their review of the Housing Need for a number of the member communities of the Region, with their work this spring and summer to assist in their obligations under new Housing legislation put in place by the province.
As part of their efforts to meet those obligations the Regional District will be preparing a report and develop recommendations to help inform their future policy on housing in the region.
To assist them in their work, NCRD has selected the Calibrate Group to provide its expertise towards developing their report, with the first step an online survey which has just been launched on the NCRD website.
The survey features 23 questions, the first segment basic information taking as to where you live, how long you have lived on the North Coast and if you have had residence in the same home for the majority of that time.
The Housing specific questions ask about the type of housing you are currently in, whether that housing is what you need for your current needs and what the cost is of the housing you are in.
The District notes that the work at hand does not include the incorporated municipalities of the City of Prince Rupert, the District of Port Edward, the Village of Queen Charlotte, the Village of Masset, and the Village of Port Clements, which have recently completed or are currently working on their own separate HNA reports.
However, respondents to the survey can note if they live in those areas and seemingly contribute to the survey if they wish.
