We have now completed the new Housing Strategy which covers 2010 - 2013. Please click here to view the document and other supporting evidence that helped formulate the work.
The South Kesteven Housing Strategy 2010-13 is unlike previous housing strategies, in that has been developed within the context of the Lincolnshire Housing Strategy 2008-13. This document has been agreed by a range of housing authorities and providers as an overarching strategic document to deliver the wider community aspirations set out in the Lincolnshire Sustainable Community Strategy.
This Housing Strategy is therefore focussing on the issues within the Lincolnshire Housing Strategy which are of particular relevance to South Kesteven as a District and identifying how the District Council, working with its partners, will seek to address these.
Information about the housing market, the demographic issues, and needs of particular groups have all been the subject of detailed research in partnership with other Councils and are detailed in the Lincolnshire Housing Strategy evidence base available below.
The Housing Strategy 2010-2013 therefore aims to:
- Reflect the wider vision of the authority and its partners as demonstrated in the Lincolnshire Housing Strategy
- Provide a clear and evidenced approach to prioritising action on housing at county and local level; and
- Provide a strong focus on how the Council working with its partners will deliver actions which will address local housing issues and support its wider corporate priorities
The three key themes which have emerged for the housing strategy of "Meeting a range of needs for housing and support"; "Maximising our resources"; and "Delivery of a quality, affordable housing environment" were informed by the discussion at the workshop events of a number of housing issues which were felt by stakeholders to be of local importance for the District.
To see the new Housing Strategy please look at the documents listed on the page below. It details the three key focus areas mentioned above and sets out action plans to achieve the goals set. The other documents help summarise the evidence base and there are other related housing strategy documents below.
