Leeds City Council sets out its new five-year housing strategy

The strategy’s main ambition is to ensure the provision of high-quality affordable homes in thriving and inclusive communities, with the support services and facilities needed by tenants and residents.

Since the last housing strategy was developed in 2016, lots of progress has been made with significant investment made into the delivery of new affordable homes; improvements made to the energy efficiency of existing homes; reductions to the number of people experiencing homelessness and preventing and minimising temporary homelessness. While this is all positive news, the new housing strategy aims to build on this success and further work towards tackling poverty and inequality and improving the quality of life for everyone who calls Leeds home.

There will be an increased focus on supporting the three pillars in the council’s Best City Ambition – improving the city’s health and wellbeing, supporting inclusive growth and being a carbon neutral city by 2030.
