The Housing Strategy

Housing Strategy 2016-2021

We are pleased to introduce South Derbyshire District Councilís Housing Strategy 2016 Ė 21 which sets out the Councilís ambitions for housing over the next five years, and how we intend to achieve them.  

Our strategy has been developed after extensive consultation with residents, elected members and external partners during 2015, and was approved and adopted by the Council in January 2016.

In producing this strategy we have identified three key strategic priorities for our Housing Strategy 2016 -2021:

  • improving access to and supply of housing
  • well maintained, safer, greener homes
  • enabling people to live independently. 

Affordable housing guidance

People in South Derbyshire are increasingly unable to secure adequate accommodation for themselves and their families.

To assist developers and the like, the council has adopted an "Affordable Housing Guidance" which provides a single reference point with the aim of providing clarity on the council's approach to affordable housing in the district. It is available in the related documents section.
