(c)  The Council has a nomination agreement with Langstane Housing Association.  They are the landlord of Cromarty Court. The Council receive nomination requests for 50% of Langstane’s vacancies across all their stock in Moray.

(d)  Demand for council housing far outweighs supply throughout the whole of Moray including Findhorn.  Research carried out in 2011 highlighted that 424 new affordable houses would need to be built per year, every year for a ten year period in order to address current and projected housing need. Please refer to our Moray Housing Need and Demand Assessment (HNDA) for more information.

As a result of Scottish Government funding, there is a Council New Build programme underway to increase council housing stock within the four main towns in Moray.  There will however still be a significant shortfall of council housing to meet demand across Moray.
