Housing strategies, policies and reports

Take a look at our housing strategy and related policies.

The Housing Strategy 2013-2018 is the product of consultation with a range of stakeholders and draws upon multiple data sources in setting out an ambitious vision for the future of the District within the context of the corporate priority of creating the environment to support good housing for all.

Supporting that corporate priority are four strategic housing priorities:

Priority 1: High quality new affordable homes available to buy or rent

Priority 2: Improved housing standards across the district and for all tenures

Priority 3: Access to housing and wellbeing services

Priority 4: Promotion of sustainable neighbourhoods and communities

The creation of the environment to support the delivery of good housing for all does not take place in a vacuum: the district council, as the local strategic housing authority, operates within a context of national housing, economic and social welfare policies which are significantly influential.
