South Norfolk Council says a newly adopted housing strategy aims to give residents “the best start in life” in a district “full of opportunity”.
Covering 2016 to 2019, the strategy sets out how the district council will achieve its vision through four priority outcomes, including providing a good supply of housing, access to affordable properties, residents living in warm, decent, and safe homes, and making sure support and advice is on hand.
Councillor Yvonne Bendle, cabinet member for Well-being and Early Intervention said: “A person’s home is an important factor in determining whether or not they are able to achieve their full potential in terms of their health, wellbeing, education, employment, and participation in their community.
“All residents should have access to a safe home of a good standard which they can afford and are able to maintain.
“This Strategy clarifies what we want to achieve, and how we plan to do it.”
The strategy which was subject to a 12 week consultation period is accompanied by an action plan which will be used to identify the key actions that will deliver the priority outcomes and this plan will be reviewed on an annual basis.
