South Staffordshire Housing and Homelessness Strategy 2023-2027: Consultation

The Council recently consulted on a new Housing & Homelessness Strategy 2023-2027. Click here for more information.

Affordable Housing & Housing Mix SPD - Consultation CLOSED

We recently consulted on an update to our Affordable Housing & Housing Mix SPD. We have a strong track record of delivering affordable homes and the SPD sets out the Council's expectations in relation to the provision of housing in the district. This provides clarity for landowners, developers, registered providers and residents and will ensure a consistent approach is taken between sites across the district.

The consultation ran for 8 weeks from Thursday 17 October until 5pm Thursday 12 December 2019. The draft SPD can be viewed here:

Affordable Housing and Housing Mix SPD 2019

SPD Response Form

We are now considering all responses received and making any relevant changes to the document. We aim to adopt the final SPD in 2020.

The existing SPD was adopted in 2014:

Affordable Housing and Housing Mix SPD 2014

Housing and Homelessness Strategy

This strategy sets out how South Staffordshire Council and partners will ensure everyone in the district is able to access a home that is suitable for them, and how the Council will meet its statutory homelessness duties.

Housing Assistance Policy

This policy outlines a range of financial and other assistance available for repairs, improvements and adaptations to housing in South Staffordshire.

The Adopted Core Strategy

On the 11th December 2012 South Staffordshire Council formally adopted the Core Strategy (Local Plan) Development Plan Document.

Housing Market Assessment

It is essential that the Council understands the whole housing market and can develop sound and robust approaches to preparing and reviewing local planning and housing strategies. The latest Housing Market Assessment Update 2022 aims to enable the Council to understand the nature of housing need within South Staffordshire.

Data Protection

The Strategic Planning Team manages and maintains a register of persons who have an interest in local planning documents (Local Plan Database); those who wish to register their interest or land for future development on our Self and Custom Build Register and/or Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA); those who have commented on emerging Council strategy documents; and information regarding historic home improvement grants and empty properties. In order to do this in an effective way we will need to collect and use personal information about you.
