Rented and affordable homes

What steps are we taking to improve?

  1. We will deliver all of the above through our Affordable Homes Delivery Plan and the Council’s new build programme. Our plans to increase the supply of affordable homes to buy and rent will have a huge impact on the health, economic, social and cultural well-being of the County. We will also continue to bring empty homes back into use to increase choice and provide the right type of home in the right areas.

Our focus for 2021-22 will be on:

  • The local housing crisis - escalating costs and second homes
  • The success for this objective will be measured by the number of affordable homes in the County
