Housing and Homelessness Strategy 2020 to 2024
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s Housing and Homelessness Strategy sets out our main priorities and actions to meet affordable housing needs in the borough. Part of this includes a plan to prevent homelessness (a Homelessness Strategy), which we have to do by law.
The Housing and Homeless Strategy 2020-2024 was adopted at Full Council in July 2020 and focuses largely on housing choices for all. Whilst building new homes is important, the strategy has further dedicated focus on preventing homelessness and rough sleeping, supporting the vulnerable, increasing access to low cost home ownership as well as emerging themes including tackling climate change and place shaping.
The five priorities of the Housing and Homeless Strategy are as follows:
- Preventing homelessness
- Eradicating rough sleeping by 2024
- Housing choice and quality
- Tackling climate change
- Place shaping
The council produces an annual monitoring report to measure the progress of the Strategy. Please see the published monitoring reports below.
