Stratford-on-Avon District Housing Strategy 2015-2020

Wilkins Way - Ilmimgton

The Housing Strategy details how the Council and its partners will work together to ensure that more people get the opportunity to live independently in good quality housing of their choice. Partner organisations, representative groups, users of housing services and the general public helped draw up the Housing Strategy.

The Housing Strategy also includes the District's Homelessness Review and Strategy, and Private Sector Housing Strategy. It does not deal with the overall number and location of new homes as that is the role of the Local Development Plan - Core Strategy. In addition the Council has a separate Tenancy Strategy 2012.

Angela's Meadow - Shipston

The Council adopted the Housing Strategy in April 2015. The Cabinet and Council reviewed the Strategy on 30 November 2015 and 14 December 2015 respectively to ensure that it was still relevant and to monitor progress in delivering the actions.

Three documents make up the Housing Strategy:

1. The Stratford-on-Avon District Housing Strategy 2015-2020 document. The Action Plan sets out 23 high level actions under three Aims:

  • Aim 1: To support communities including increasing the supply and choice of good quality affordable homes for local people.
  • Aim 2: To improve existing housing and help people live as independently as possible.
  • Aim 3: To prevent homelessness and reduce the harm caused by it.
Bungalows - Stockton

2. An Evidence Log that includes consultation, statistics and a review of homelessness. There is a list of the strategies, research and information that support the Housing Strategy at the end of the Log.

3. An Equality Impact Assessment.

Events and Surveys which contribute to the Housing Strategy can be accessed from the Housing Strategy and Development page of the website.

The Cabinet is responsible for monitoring delivery of the Housing Strategy Action Plan twice yearly.
