Housing Strategy & Research
Information about housing strategies, related strategies, and current projects.
The final Local Housing Strategy 2012-2017 was endorsed by the Community Planning Partnership, The Alliance, in September 2012, and approved by the Housing, Health and Care Committee on 25th October 2012, and by full Council on 20th December 2012.

Homelessness is a key priority in the Local Housing Strategy and a key action within this is to deliver a detailed homelessness action plan with partners.
