Local housing strategy 2023-28

Our Local Housing Strategy (LHS) 2023-2028 is the key strategic document for housing in the region. The LHS sets out how we and our partners plan to address housing and housing related opportunities and challenges in all tenures over the five year period.

We believe that good housing can help our community to:

  • tackle attainment
  • reduce inequalities
  • create sustainable communities
  • assist in regenerating the places where we live

The LHS is key in informing housing investment and service delivery and to ensuring everyone has a home which meets their needs.

Following a period of consultation with key partners, community groups and the public, the final version of the LHS 2023-2028 was approved in November 2023. The full version can be found here:
