Minutes:

The Assistant Director: Social Care Commissioning and Housing submitted a report for Executive to consider and agree adoption of the Housing Strategy 2019-2024 and Action Plan 2019-20, taking in to account the results of the public consultation phase.

 

Resolved

 

(1)            That the Housing Strategy 2019-2024 and Action Plan 2019-2020 (annexes to the Minutes as set out in the Minute Book) be agreed for adoption and implementation.

 

(2)            That the results of the public consultation on the Strategy and how these have been taken in to account be noted.

 

(3)            That the equalities impact assessment that supports the Strategy be noted.

 

Reasons

 

The Housing Strategy sets out our priorities for responding to the wider housing needs of the district but with a focus on affordable housing which is the council’s key role. It takes particular account of the current and future needs of groups such as older people, disabled people, young people, vulnerable families and people on low income. The housing needs of these groups are a priority in terms of their vulnerability, access to housing, affordability and achieving positive health outcomes. 

 

It is not a statutory requirement to have a Housing Strategy but is seen as good practice in setting out the Council’s priorities and plans for meeting housing need based on local assessments of need

 

Alternative options

 

Not to agree to adopt and implement to Housing Strategy 2019-2024 and Action Plan 2019-202.
