Housing Strategy

In line with our core strategies and Community Plan, we have created a new housing strategy (PDF File, 965kb) for the period 2023-2028. The new strategy is developed to include action plans that cover national, regional and local policies and law. It predicts the current and future directions of the Council, including opportunities to create more and better quality homes and communities around the District.

There are four major focus points within the strategy:

  1. Enabling housing growth and regeneration to secure sustainable communities
  2. Delivering an increased supply of affordable housing
  3. Meeting housing need for the district’s diverse communities
  4. Driving excellence in housing standards across all tenures
