Somerset Strategic Housing Framework

 

11 July 2018

The draft of Somerset Strategic Housing Framework 2018 - 2022 is was out for consultation until April 30 2018.

Working from consultation responses on the Housing Market Profiles and the Workshop Summary, we now have the Draft Somerset Strategic Housing Framework & Consultation Questionnaire.

The draft Framework has a vision that seeks to achieve the following:

  • Strong and effective strategic Leadership
  • A local Economy that provides opportunity for all
  • Homes in Somerset that are good for your Health
  • A Society that supports the vulnerable

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 at  www.mendip.gov.uk/somersethousingstrategy.

Alternatively, email your comments to:  enablingteam@mendip.gov.uk   For advice please call: Tel: 0300 303 8588


19 July 2017 

We had 100 attendees at our stakeholder engagement event - the aim of the event was to inform housing priorities and actions across Somerset for the next five years. They came from a range of services, including planning, housing, health, social care and the voluntary sector. Presentations from all of the key speakers are available in the Information and Resources section of this page.

We have now started an initial consultation/engagement phase that will continue until 30 September 2017. For this phase we are asking just three high-level questions - see the final page of the housing profiles for details of the questions and how to submit them to us.


Somerset Strategic Housing Framework

The Somerset Strategic Housing Framework encompasses the housing strategies and the district action plans for Somerset. The current Framework was published in 2013 and is now being reviewed. To begin this process, housing market profiles have been produced for each of the districts together with a county-wide profile. These profiles highlight key facts and information - and you can links to our district colleagues' websites in the information and resources section of this page.
