Homes in the right places

ten pledges, five years, one community

By 2016 we will have plans in place to provide enough homes to meet local housing need and the needs of our economy.

In order to meet this aim, we would expect to see progress on the following measures during the next five years:

  • An increase in the number of new additional homes built each year to suit all needs
  • An increase in the number of ready-to-develop housing sites
  • An increase in the proportion of homes that are aff ordable to local people
  • An improvement in average income/average house price ratio.

A new Local Plan for the district

A new Local Plan for the district has progressed significantly over 2012. The plan aims to create the right conditions to encourage new investment that will diversify and strengthen the local economy. The council will be formally consulting on this important plan in the Spring of 2013
