City housing strategy

Our city housing strategy covers all tenures and types of housing. The strategy sets out the priorities for delivering housing and related services.

We focus on three groups, people who

  • live in a home they can afford
  • live in a warm, safe home in a well-managed neighbourhood
  • can move home if they need to.

We review the strategy each year.

We plan to 

  • deliver 10,000 new affordable and low cost homes by 2022/23

  • expand services that help reduce living costs for tenants
  • bring existing homes and neighbourhoods up to the same quality standard as new build homes
  • improve energy efficiency of homes
  • work with Health and Social Care partners to help meet the housing and support needs of a changing population
  • review the use of temporary accommodation and explore different ways of supporting homeless households.
