Stafford Borough Council's Housing Strategy 2015 - 2019

    Our Housing Strategy is currently under review.

    The housing strategy has a vision to provide a range of high quality, safe and affordable housing to meet the current and future needs of Stafford Borough’s population and to ensure a healthy living environment for residents and local communities.

    There are two overarching priorities for Stafford Borough Council and partners, the first is Desirable Homes and Neighbourhoods, we will:-

    • Deliver a range of housing types and tenures to meet local needs;
    • Ensure desirable homes and neighbourhoods;
    • Encourage owners of empty homes to bring properties back into use;
    • Promote the Borough as a place to invest; and
    • Ensure public space is clean, green and attractive.

    The second priority is Healthy People and Communities, we will:-

    • Prevent homelessness and support homeless households into permanent accommodation;
    • Ensure homes across all tenures provide a healthy living environment that enable residents to thrive;
    • Tackle Fuel Poverty and Energy Inefficient Homes;
    • Support residents to find work, where needed, to avoid long term worklessness;
    • Ensure older and vulnerable households, including carers have access to services; and 
    • Support the reduction of crime in locality areas and support victims of crime.
