Housing and Homelessness Strategy

Buckinghamshire Council's Housing and Homelessness Strategy 2019-2022

The Homelessness Act 2002 requires each local authority in England to publish a Homelessness Strategy.

A thorough review of housing and homelessness in Aylesbury Vale was carried out in 2018. The findings of this review and the ongoing work with stakeholders and key partners has been used to develop a new Housing and Homelessness Strategy for 2019-2022, which launched on 21 January 2019. 

The vision within the strategy is that those who want to make the Vale their home are supported and empowered to do so.

The strategy has four strategic priorities to help achieve this:

Strategic Priority 1: Prevent and reduce homelessness and rough sleeping

Strategic Priority 2: Continue to facilitate and maximise the supply of affordable housing

Strategic Priority 3: Respond to the ongoing challenges of welfare reform

Strategic Priority 4: Contribute to the improvement of health and wellbeing services for people at risk of homelessness

The action plan within the strategy will be updated quarterly and published on this webpage.
