Housing Delivery Plan
Why a Housing Delivery Plan is needed
The Social and Affordable Housing Need Study commissioned in 2018 and undertaken by GL Hearn, concluded that 'overall, the analysis identifies a notable need for affordable housing, and it is clear that provision of new affordable housing is an important and pressing issue in the Borough.' The report stressed that 'the amount of affordable housing delivered will be limited to the amount that can viably be provided' and 'suggest that affordable housing delivery should be maximised where opportunities arise.'
How housing need will be met
It is recognised that the affordable housing needs of the residents of the Borough can only be met through the use of a combination of the following delivery mechanisms.
- Acquisition of existing properties
- Re-modelling of existing and under-used accommodation
- Partnership work with local registered providers
- New build development
Phased housing delivery
The Delivery Plan is divided into three phases which each use a combination of the above delivery mechanisms:
Phase 1 - Years 1 and 2 (2019 - 2021)
Phase 2 - Years 3 to 5 (2021 - 2024)
Phase 3 - Years 5 onwards (2024 onwards)
