To consider the report of the head of development, regeneration and housing.
Cabinet considered the report of the head of development, regeneration and housing. This proposed the adoption of a joint housing delivery strategy with Vale of White Horse District Council, to cover the period 2018 to 2028. The aim was for the council to take on the role of housing delivery enabler to assist in meeting housing targets.
Following a study of housing need and housing market trends, the strategy had been developed to assist housing developments to meet that need with minimal delay and to be of good quality. Cabinet believed the strategy would also help provide homes that were suitable for everyone, including enabling independent living, and provide homes that were affordable to those whose needs were not met by the market. The action plan would enable the council to be more in control over future housing developments in the district.
RESOLVED: to adopt the Joint Housing Delivery Strategy 2018–2028.
