All councils in England have a duty under the Local Government Act 2003, to produce and publish a housing strategy setting out its key priorities for housing. As the local housing authority, Craven District Council's Housing Strategy contributes towards the Council's vision of 'ensuring sustainable towns and villages with access to suitable housing and excellent local services'.
The Strategy's four key priorities are:
This strategy will be the principal tool for directing future housing investment across the sub region and will form the framework around which all our housing policies and initiatives will be developed.
The North Yorkshire Housing Strategy is supported by a North Yorkshire Action Plan which will ensure delivery of the Strategy. This action plan sets out what the Partnership intends to achieve through the Strategy and the key mechanisms for delivery of these ambitions.
It is recognised that each local authority, whilst sharing some common issues, has issues that need to be addressed at a local level. Therefore, following agreement of the North Yorkshire Action Plan, each authority developed its own Action Plan. After consultations with stakeholders and interested parties, Craven developed a set of actions in addition to those within the North Yorkshire Action Plan.
