Housing Strategy 2022 to 2052

Housing strategy consultation

This consultation has closed

We are developing a new housing strategy for South Gloucestershire.

The aim is to help everyone in South Gloucestershire to access housing that meets their needs and that they can afford.

Housing plays an important role in helping to:

  • reduce inequalities
  • give children the best start in life
  • improve health and wellbeing
  • support people to reach their full potential

About the strategy

The strategy will be used to improve the delivery of high quality housing. We will be ambitious, requiring all new housing, regeneration and retrofitting of existing homes to achieve net zero carbon by 2030.

What it means

By putting this strategy into action over the next 30 years (to 2052), we aim to provide:

  • a home for everyone that meets their needs
  • sustainable homes for the future
  • thriving communities and neighbourhoods

We are committed to responding to:

  • the climate and nature emergency
  • health and wellbeing
  • equal opportunities

The values of our housing strategy must be linked to the Council Plan and our other relevant plans and strategies.

The strategy will be reviewed regularly to make sure it continues to respond to housing needs across South Gloucestershire, and reflects changes in national policy, legislation and strategy.

Who we are working with

We are developing the strategy through work with our partners and stakeholders in the community, regionally and nationally.

We are working with the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) and other neighbouring authorities on cross-boundary housing issues and priorities.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
