Draft housing strategy consultation

Find out about our draft housing strategy and let us know what you think about it.

We are developing an ambitious new strategy to deliver homes that meet the needs of communities across North Yorkshire.

This strategy provides a framework for the housing policies and projects that we will carry out in the next five years.

The strategy includes proposals to:

  • tackle homelessness
  • meet the needs of the ageing population
  • increase the supply of affordable and available housing
  • reduce fuel poverty
  • decarbonise homes
  • bring long term empty properties back into use

Our ambition is to help the development of at least 12,685 new homes, based on existing Local Plan commitments, of which at least 4010 will be affordable.

We will also develop a council housing growth plan. This to increase and improve our existing stock of 8,500 homes.
