Housing and Homelessness Strategy 2019-2022

Consultation open 25 June - 3 August 2018

Following a review of detailed research and consultation with our partner stakeholders, we've produced a draft Housing and Homelessness Strategy for the period 2019-2022.

This consultation is designed to seek your views on the key issues addressed in this strategy.

The Housing and Homelessness Strategy sets out our commitment to working in partnership with stakeholders to prevent or resolve homelessness wherever possible and ensure people wishing to make the Vale their home are able to do so. It is focused around four key priorities:

  • To prevent and reduce homelessness and rough sleeping
  • To continue to facilitate and maximise the supply of affordable housing
  • To respond to the ongoing challenges of welfare reform
  • To contribute to the improvement of health and wellbeing services for people at risk of homelessness

Have your say

We welcome your comments and views on the draft strategy including future service proposals and how these could be improved. We especially encourage those who have been impacted directly or indirectly by homelessness to provide their insight.

The consultation will be open 25 June - 3 August 2018 - take part here (please make sure you read the strategy before you do this).

What happens next?

Comments received through the consultation process will be considered by the council before the strategy is finalised and presented for adoption. Once the final strategy has been agreed, details of the changes and the consultation responses will be published on our website.

Respondents and key stakeholders will be sent the outcome of the consultation plus a link to approved final strategy once approved.
