Housing and Homelessness Strategy


Housing and Homelessness Strategy

This consultation runs from 15 October 2018 to 26 November 2018. We invite you to look at the background information about homelessness, housing need and stock condition and answer our consultation questions.

The Council has an existing Housing and Homelessness Strategy, which is now due to be reviewed and updated.

We are consulting on a set of three proposed priorities for a new strategy:

  • Reducing Demand: Prevent and reduce homelessness
  • Increasing Supply: Maximise the supply of high quality affordable housing in urban and rural areas
  • Improving quality: Ensure homes are warm, healthy, and well maintained

The Strategy will set out how we will deliver our housing and homelessness services in the future. We would appreciate it if you would take a little time to review the information below and give us your opinion on the proposed priorities by completing this questionnaire:  https://surveymechanics.com/s/housing-strategy
