Recommendation 8 - Housing solutions

Novel staff accommodation solutions should be sought with Highland Council (lead agency for housing), public representatives, housing associations, the independent sector and local communities.

This is a pressing matter, which should also take account of temporary accommodation for undergraduate and postgraduate health care worker training, which requires flexibility (see Recommendation 13). Such training accommodation, when not in use for training purposes, might be re-deployed to give temporary accommodation to growing numbers of visitors and tourists, particularly in Skye. These accommodation solutions are also relevant for the resilience of other public sector organisations and should be pursued in common endeavour.
