Public consultation - Middlesbrough Housing Strategy 2017-2020
The consultation is now closed. Many thanks to those who took the time to comment.
Your views will be taken into consideration in finalising the Strategy, which will be brought to a future meeting of the Council’s Executive for adoption.
We have prepared a draft Housing Strategy and would welcome your views.
The draft Housing Strategy aims to deliver investment in new and existing homes and neighbourhoods in order to meet the diverse needs and aspirations of our communities, help people live healthier and happier lives, drive and support economic growth and mitigate public service challenges and costs.
As such, it will play a major part in helping to deliver the Mayor’s 2025 Vision of a town where people want to live, with fair access to high quality homes for all. It is also central to the town’s Investment Strategy and will support the ambition of the Tees Valley Strategic Economic Plan, to accelerate the supply of good quality homes across the whole housing market.
The draft strategy has three key objectives:
- meet the housing needs and aspirations of a growing population;
- improve the life opportunities of residents in areas of poor quality housing and deprivation; and,
- address the pressures of an ageing population and support vulnerable people to live independent lives for as long as possible
The draft strategy provides more detail on each of the objectives along with associated priorities and actions.
Following the consultation, the comments received will be taken into consideration in finalising the Housing Strategy, which will be brought to a future meeting of the Council’s Executive for adoption.
