The council is consulting on its draft Housing and Homelessness Prevention Strategy 2018-2023 and would like to hear your views.

The draft strategy sets out how the council, along with its partners, will respond to the housing challenges faced by the district in order to provide good quality housing options.

It is structured around three key strategic housing priorities which have been developed according to local, regional and national policies:

  • Increase the supply and choice of good quality homes that local people can afford
  • Improve quality and make efficient use of existing housing within the district to ensure it meets current and future housing needs
  • Support vulnerable people to access and maintain housing including preventing and ending homelessness
