A better place to call home

Whilst there is a need for more housing it should not come at the expense of our great spaces. Our plan delivers the right housing with the schools and transport links in mind to make sure new developments work for us.

No matter what stage of life you’re at, our housing plan offers a home suitable for you.

To give you the right home we will:

  • Scope out the potential for the Council to develop new social and low cost housing whilst exploring new ways to build the homes we need.
  • Use new innovations, like modular housing, to build quickly and efficiently on land  released by the council.
  • Plan for more bungalows and one bedroom houses to suit all needs and requirements.
  • Make sure homes are future-proof to support owners and tenants whose circumstances change through age or disability.
  • Partner with providers to significantly increase the number of supported housing schemes across the borough, especially in rural areas.
