Draft Housing Strategy 2019 - 2024 consultation
Housing is about more than just bricks and mortar. The ability to access good quality, affordable housing and housing-related services makes a real and enduring difference to people’s lives, and it has long been understood that poor quality housing has a significant adverse impact on the wellbeing of the occupants and on the quality of life in the surrounding area.
Perhaps now more than ever, the condition, availability and affordability of housing plays a vital role in the overall health of our district as a whole.
This Housing Strategy sets out the Council’s plans to deliver housing and housing- related services across all tenures and types of housing for the next five years.
The Strategy can be seen as a single document that pulls together the aims and objectives set out in the Council’s wide range of policies and plans that cover housing. These include the Private Sector Housing Renewal Policy and the Homelessness Prevention Strategy, alongside other relevant documents like the Older People’s Health and Housing Plan and the objectives we have as a landlord.
We’re also taking the opportunity to ask people for their views on Gloucestershire Rural Community Council’s scoping paper looking at Community-Led Housing in the district.
We’re eager to hear everyone’s views on these draft documents, so please do take a few minutes to have a look at the strategy and the scoping paper and let us have your views in the survey below.
