Housing strategy

Somerset Strategic Housing Framework 

The Somerset Strategic Housing Framework 2018 - 2022 has a vision that seeks to achieve the following:

It is proposed that the Vision will be delivered by a range of supporting Priorities and Ambitions.

The Framework is now out for consultation.

To support the review of the Framework, each Somerset district and the County Council has produced Housing Market Profiles to highlight key issues, achievements, opportunities and challenges.

A very successful and well attended Strategic Housing Framework conference was organised as part of the review on 12 July 2017 at Taunton Rugby Club, with over one hundred delegates attending.

Working from consultation responses on the Housing Market Profiles and the Workshop Summary, we now have the Draft Somerset Strategic Housing Framework and Consultation Questionnaire. The countywide consultation runs until 30 April 2018.

There are several ways you can tell us your views or seek further information. Please note that Mendip District Council are coordinating responses to this consultation on behalf of all Somerset district councils, the County Council and partner agencies.

You can complete an on-line consultation on www.mendip.gov.uk/somersethousingstrategy
