Craven District Council tackles homelessness as part of a wider sub-regional housing strategy and at a local level we have worked with our partners to develop a Homelessness Strategy which addresses Craven issues
Craven Homeless Strategy
Our current homeless strategy runs from 2015-2020, however there have been significant changes in housing and homeless at a local and national level since 2015:
- Introduction of the Homeless Reduction Act in 2018
- National Rough Sleeping Strategy published in August 2018
- Government commitment to end homelessness by 2027
- Ongoing reductions to Supporting People services
As a result we intend to carry out a full review over the next 12 months and have a new strategy in place by Autumn 2019 which responds to the new agenda.

Craven Housing and Homelessness Integrated Action Plan 2018/19
The Craven Housing & Homelessness Integrated Action Plan 2018/19 [370kb] contains local actions relating to both housing and homelessness to deliver the sub-regional housing strategy and our Craven Homelessness Strategy. Although only a one-year action plan - it does contain "ongoing" actions for the lifetime of the strategies and will be updated each year following subsequent reviews to include additional actions.
York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Housing Strategy 2015 / 2021
