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.

Affordable Housing and Housing Mix SPD

The Affordable Housing and Housing Mix Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides guidance on the interpretation and application of policies H1 and H2 of The Adopted Core Strategy.

Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA)

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 2017 aims to enable the Council to understand the nature and level of housing demand and 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. For more information about how we process this data see Strategic Planning Team - Data Protection.
