Housing Strategy

In December 2014 and January 2015 the Housing Service, in partnership with HouseMark, undertook a series of consultation events with staff, residents, Councillors and external stakeholders. This led to the development of five themes, supported by 25 key outcomes to be achieved by 2020. On 22nd July 2015 the strategy was approved by Council.

Housing Strategy 2015- 2020 Front Cover

The five themes that have been chosen are:

  • Developing homes to meet the needs of our residents

  • Developing communities to achieve their potential

  • Developing people to provide the best possible service

  • Developing partnerships to deliver improvements

  • Developing services to an excellent standard

Affordable Housing Performance

Through the Housing Strategy we have committed that by 2020 we will:

  • Review all garage sites to assess need and suitability for use as residential land

  • Continue to work with registered providers to increase the supply of affordable housing with the borough

  • Work with developers to ensure that housing provided meets the requirements of the area

  • Implement a system of regular reviews of housing need

  • Research the demand and need for a retirement village

  • Proactively implement initiatives to prevent discrimination and ensure equality of access to housing services
