Housing Strategy

"To create balanced communities for the residents of the New Forest District; providing a range of housing options that are affordable and sustainable"

Taking local challenges and the national policy context into account, the New Forest District Council Housing Strategy (December 2018) sets out the Council's housing priorities and our aim to accelerate wider housing delivery, to improve housing conditions and to further develop our own services as a housing provider.

Working in tandem with related plans, policies and duties to deliver the vision, the Housing Strategy sets out why and how New Forest District Council intends to use its powers, resources and influence to address four key priorities:   

  • Future Housing Development: To accelerate and maximise future housing development that meets local need and leads to sustainable growth

  • Council Housing provision: To increase the supply of high quality affordable homes through an ambitious Council house building and acquisitions programme

  • Meeting our greatest needs: To improve the housing circumstances of those within our communities most in need

  • Best use of the existing stock: To enable the best use of housing to meet local needs, including support for a strong high quality private rented sector
