Housing policies

Here are the housing policies we work to.

Housing delivery strategy

Our Joint Housing Delivery Strategy This link will take you to an external website...  sets out how we will meet the significant challenge of delivering thousands of new homes over the next 14-16 years. This strategy will work alongside our local plan to guide how these new homes will be delivered, in line with infrastucure, and ensure that the types of homes provided meet the various needs of our communities.
