Draft Housing Strategy 2014-16
The Council’s current Housing Strategy has now expired and we are consulting on a Draft Housing Strategy for 2014-16. This strategy will be reviewed in one year’s time and updated in line with the Corporate Plan priorities and having regard to any political changes both nationally and locally as a result of the 2015 elections. It will also allow us time to assess the impact of the changes around welfare reform, the Localism Act and other national changes.
