Housing Strategy and Affordable Housing

Our Housing Strategy outlines the housing needs of the District, sets housing targets and gives guidance on where new affordable housing should be built.


The strategy includes housing targets so you can measure how we perform and we can make sure we are accountable.

The targets identified within the 2013-2018 strategy are:
•Enable the delivery of more affordable homes by working in partnership with housing providers and other key stakeholders
•Improve the quality of housing
•Prevention of homelessness
•Provide support for vulnerable residents in the District

We work with providers to deliver new affordable housing across the district. The following page provides details of affordable housing schemes that will be coming available in the near future. Properties are generally advertised for letting approximately 6 weeks prior to their completion date.
There are a number of different ways to deliver affordable housing in the District. The main ones are detailed below:
Affordable housing can be Social rented housing, Intermediate rented housing or Low cost home ownership
We have funding available to help local communities deliver Community Led Housing
