Making sure that enough new homes are being built in the district is high on the agenda, as is helping people to live in their own homes for as long as they can.
Working with landlords to improve standards in privately rented housing is another area on which the council thinks it should be concentrating, along with a commitment to meet the housing needs of residents - particularly those who are vulnerable.
Councillor Nick Neilson, Cabinet member for Communities and Wellbeing, said: "There aren't many things that matter more to local people than their home and what matters to our residents matters to us. Working with various partners, we have drawn up a housing strategy that identifies what we think our priorities should be going forward.
"We are now at the stage where we would like to know what people think of our proposed approach and whether it reflects what is important to them. I would encourage anyone who has an opinion on how best the council can support those who live here and contribute towards progress in this area, to please complete our survey."
