Re: “Council questions housing survey,” Peninsula News Review, Oct. 31, 2012.
It appears to me there was too much missing information in this survey. What criteria was used, for example, to determine what is meant by the term “affordable housing”? A couple of simple questions could have been asked to help clarify this. One: “What is an affordable house for you? $150.000 to $250,000? $250,000 to $400,000? Over $400,000? Over $500.000?”
Two: “What would be an affordable rent for you?’”
As it stands, “affordable housing” on its own is a too flimsy a concept to substantiate this survey being taken seriously.
