Housing, homelessness and rough sleeping strategy

Have your say on the Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020-25

We need to update our Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy. The current version expires in 2020 and much has changed in the past five years. We want to create successful and thriving communities with housing that works for everyone. We think that focusing on these priorities is the best way to achieve this:

Increasing supply 

 We want to increase the number of new houses, ensure they are built to a high standard and meet the needs of the local community.


  Making the best use of existing stock 

 We want to create more homes through regeneration and conversion of existing buildings as well as improving the standard of existing homes to support the health and wellbeing of residents.


 Reducing homelessness and rough sleeping

 We want to work proactively to prevent homelessness and work with our partners to help people find suitable housing.



These priorities form the basis of our draft strategy. We're now asking you to have your say on the draft which will help us develop the outcomes and actions we should focus on for each priority.

You can let us know what you think by completing an online survey, which will be open until Friday 10 January 2020. It only takes a few minutes to complete and your feedback will help us in forming the final strategy.
