Housing Strategy

The Housing Strategy  2020-2024 brings together priorities outlined in the Corporate Plan with other strategies covering Housing services, including the Engagement Strategy, Neighbourhood Strategy and Garage Strategy.  

As set out in the Corporate Plan, the aim for Housing in Broxtowe is:

'A good quality home for everyone'

For this to be achieved the Corporate Plan has three priorities for housing:

  • Build more houses, more quickly on under used or derelict land
  • Invest to ensure our homes are safe and more energy efficient
  • Prevent homelessness and help people to be financially secure and independent

To develop this strategy a discussion paper was presented to Housing Committee outlining how the priorities will be achieved.  This included responses to consultation seeking views from tenants, residents and stakeholders, along with outcomes of discussions held with the Resident Involvement Group around the priorities.

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
