Local Housing Strategy 2009 - 2016
The local housing strategy aims to identify and address the unique challenges for the district of Newark and Sherwood.
Our housing strategy priorities are to:-
- Deliver an increased supply and choice of affordable housing to meet local need and manage the impact of housing growth to ensure there is a positive impact on our urban and rural communities.
- Take action to improve the condition of existing homes, reduce carbon emissions and fuel poverty along with raising standards of maintenance and management for the benefit of our local residents.
- Meet the local housing related needs of our diverse communities through partnership working and targeted housing service provision.
- Enable the new housing required by the East Midlands Regional Plan and Newark New Growth Point initiative to be delivered, to secure the promotion of sustainable communities as part of a balanced approach to the future economy of Newark and Sherwood.
