Housing strategy

Herefordshire Council faces a diversity of challenges in its role as a strategic housing authority. In common with many other councils across the country, we no longer hold our own housing stock and our resources and direct control over social housing provision has been substantially reduced over the years.

The Housing Strategy 2016-2020, is an overarching document. It connects to a number of other housing related strategic documents and plans that, taken together, provide the framework through which our housing and housing related priorities will be achieved.

The Strategy has been developed against the backdrop of national austerity and substantial local budgetary constraint, the uncertain impact of radical reforms to housing and social welfare policy and increasing pressures on local services.
