Housing Plan 2016 -2020

Cotswold District Council transferred housing stock to Fosseway Housing Association in February 1997 but we are responsible for working with other agencies to meet the need for affordable accommodation in the district.

The current Housing Plan sets out the Council's plans for housing in the Cotswold district from 2016 until 2020 and links government policy on housing with the local approach to addressing housing-related issues in the Cotswold district. The Housing plan includes the following:

  • the housing plan
  • homelessness strategy
  • strategic tenancy policy
  • policy on discharging statutory homelessness into the private sector

We support individuals and families to stay in the area by enabling affordable housing, and the 2016 to 2020 plan identified six priorities for the housing agenda in the district until 2020. These are:

  • Priority one: Understanding the Cotswold Housing Market Area.
  • Priority two: Increasing the supply and access to housing across all tenures.
  • Priority three: Developing thriving, sustainable communities.
  • Priority four: Provide housing and support services for our most vulnerable residents.
  • Priority five: Making best use of the existing housing stock.
  • Priority six: Prevent and respond to homelessness.

The Housing Plan 2016 to 2020 and the Housing Action Plan 2016-2018 was approved by the Council in October 2016.
