Conwy's Council agrees Housing Strategy
Conwy County Borough Council has today approved the Local Housing Strategy for 2018-2023.
The Local Housing Strategy is a document that has been written to provide a strategic direction to improve the access to affordable housing in Conwy.
The Strategy provides a framework that promotes partnership working with key stakeholders in the private, public and voluntary sector and sets out how the Council will respond to Conwy’s local housing needs to achieve its vision over the next five years.
The strategy has four key aims: to increase the supply of affordable housing options for those with lower incomes; to work towards meeting the diverse accommodation and support needs of everyone in the county now and in the future; to improve the condition and energy efficiency standards of housing; and to ensure people understand their housing options to enable them to make an informed decision.
A detailed action plan (to April 2020) has been prepared setting out what actions and tasks will be undertaken to help achieve the key objectives of the strategy.
Cllr Liz Roberts, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Social Care, said, “Good housing is key to a better quality of life, better health and can lift people out of poverty. For that reason, aspiring for everyone in the County of Conwy to have somewhere affordable and appropriate to live is the primary role of the Council’s strategic housing function. This housing strategy provides the foundations for our housing priorities over the next 5 years.”
