The draft Housing Supply Strategy sets out a pathway and framework for action until 2037. This is the first step in a 15 year journey that will set a direction of travel to transform supply while recognising that the range of housing supply “whole system challenges” identified require “whole system solutions”. This approach recognises that housing is an integrated system, with what impacts on one sector often having a ripple effect across the whole housing market.
The draft Strategy now open for consultation, emphasises the central role of people, places and communities in considering and delivering on housing needs and demands. Collaborative working across central and local government and with the private and voluntary and community sectors, as well as the lived experiences of a range of users, have been used to help shape solutions to help ensure the Strategy will make a difference to the challenges facing the housing supply system.
Responses to the questions within this consultation will be analysed, along with any other sources of evidence and information to help finalise Housing Supply Strategy.
We are keen to hear from a wide range of bodies, groups and individuals from within the housing and related sectors as well as more generally across society.
The publication of this draft Strategy will also be supported by a series of focused engagement events held throughout the duration of the consultation period, including public workshop sessions. You may register for these open public sessions through Eventbrite.
It is intended that the final Strategy will be published in March 2022.
