Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2021-2026

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Strategy sets out how we will respond to housing challenges, including preventing homelessness, ending rough sleeping, increasing the supply and choice of affordable homes, and improving housing and meeting need.
The Strategy will be reported to Cabinet on 24 June 2021 and agreement for consultation will be requested. Once consultation has been undertaken, the comments and feedback received will be considered and the Strategy will be amended and updated as necessary. Cabinet will be asked to adopt the final Strategy.





  1. That the Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2021-2026 at Appendix A be adopted.
  2. That the Housing Advisory Panel reviews and evaluates the action plans that sit under the four key ambitions every six months, to ensure that the Council’s priorities remain in the right direction and reflect local and national priorities be approved.


REASON FOR DECISION: Having a current Strategy would mean the Council was complying with the Homelessness Act 2002, the Government’s Rough Sleeping Strategy and that ambitions and aims are in place for the next five years.
