Consultation: homelessness, rough sleeping and affordable housing strategy

We are now consulting on our proposed 2020-2022 homelessness, rough sleeping and affordable housing strategy.

Full details of this consultation, as well as the consultation draft action plan and other supporting documents can be viewed below.

Summary

Following a review of our previous strategy by Shelter, we are sharing our proposed action plans to work with people who are at risk of, or have become, homeless as well as those who are sleeping rough. The action plan also includes our actions regarding affordable housing in general, including private sector housing enforcement, houses of multiple occupation and disabled facility grants.

The public consultation on these action plans will inform our new homelessness, rough sleeping and affordable housing strategy.


Purpose and detail

Through this consultation we want to hear local views which will help us to refine our approach to improving housing in the district for all. The new strategy will be a two-year strategy that follows on from our 2014-2019 strategy.
