Additional documents:




That the Cabinet approves the Draft Hillingdon Housing Strategy 2021/22 to 2025/26 included at Appendix A for consultation.


Reasons for decision


Cabinet agreed to progress with consultation on its draft Housing strategy for the coming years. The Cabinet Member for Environment, Housing and Regeneration noted how this would help the Council develop its housing policy and the actions needed to meet the needs of residents, support independent living and also assist rough sleepers.


With a significant housing waiting list, the Council would be investing in more affordable housing and along with the planned regeneration schemes, this would help to increase the supply and quality of the Council’s housing stock.


The Cabinet Member paid his appreciation to the officers in the housing department involved in the development of the Strategy and the Leader of the Council set out the importance of residents having the opportunity to comment on it as part of the public consultation.


Alternative options considered and rejected


None, as the Council would not have a framework in which to take its housing policies forward over the coming years.
