Housing strategies and documents

1. Stockport’s housing strategy 2016 - 2021

Our last Housing Strategy “A Good Place to Live” expired in 2015.

All local authorities have a statutory requirement to produce a Housing Strategy.

The Housing Strategy 2016-2021 draws together all the housing issues that we currently face into one comprehensive document in the context of an ageing population, new government policies, a fast changing local housing market and a challenging economic climate.

It also outlines our long term housing vision and what is required to move forward over the next 5 years. Within this strategy we have set out a number of aims, priorities and actions that will form the focus for delivery over the coming years.

A summary ‘Stockport Housing Vision’ document which was requested by the Executive Councillor has also been produced. This briefly highlights the key housing issues and how we propose to tackle them.
