Strategies - Housing

Draft Housing Strategy

Consultation on the draft Housing Strategy closed on Wednesday 2 November. Consultation responses will be considered by a Council Scrutiny Board and it is expected that the final Housing Strategy will be approved in early 2023.

Our Housing Strategy vision is that ‘Everyone in the Borough is able to access housing at the point of need and has opportunities to create sustainable homes in thriving communities’. The Strategy considers the challenges and opportunities in realising this vision and sets out our ambitions across a broad range of areas.

The Housing Strategy is also accompanied by an Implementation Plan which sets out how key priorities will be delivered. The Implementation Plan primarily focuses on new and developmental actions. It does not seek to capture work that is already being done in the Borough.
