Housing policies and strategies

Housing and Technical Resources operate a Policy and Strategy Review Schedule to provide a clear timeframe for the formal review of all key housing policies and strategies.

This schedule assists the council in ensuring the documents meet statutory requirements and also allows for regular review by customers.  If you would like to be consulted on the review of these documents, please visit our Customer involvement pages to see how you can contribute.

The table below outlines the key policies and strategies regularly reviewed under the schedule. To view the full document, please click on the link within the table.
