The Council’s Housing Strategy 2012 – 2015 is now available for consultation and we are keen to incorporate the views of all of our partners and stakeholders in the final document which will be published in April 2012. We are particularly interested in your comments on the proposed strategic priorities which are set out on page 13 and are as follows:
Increasing the number of homes available to buy and rent, including affordable housing;
Protecting the vulnerable and disadvantaged by tackling homelessness and supporting people to stay in their own homes;
Making sure that homes are of high quality and sustainable.
Do you agree that these should be the Council’s priorities for housing over the next three years?
Do you agree that by taking effective action in these areas we will have a positive impact on the issues set out underneath each of these priorities?
Are there other actions the Council should be taking on housing issues in the District?
Please let us have your comments on the document by Friday 16 March 2012. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss any aspect of the draft Strategy or require hard copies or a different format please contact Derek Hardy at North Dorset District Council on 01258 484041, DHardy@north-dorset.gov.uk
