Housing strategy

We are responsible for working with other agencies to meet the need for affordable accommodation in the district.

The draft Housing Strategy 2020 to 2024 aims to support our aims to meet housing challenges by focusing on delivering three key objectives. The priorities identified within the draft strategy are:

  • Strategic Housing Priority 1: Delivering Homes to meet the housing needs of our communities
  • Strategic Housing Priority 2: Meeting the need of older people
  • Strategic Housing Priority 3: Providing sustainable homes and places to live

Once adopted it will provide an overarching framework which we will use to consider and formulate other policies on more specific housing issues.

To let us know your views on the draft strategy please add your comments to the document.

The Consultation closes on Tuesday 20 October 2020.
