The Local Housing Strategy (LHS) is the main strategic document for housing. It sets out our priorities and plans for delivery of housing and housing related services. Work is ongoing to finalise our 2023–2028 LHS which we hope to publish in Spring 2024. Please see our Local Housing Strategy 2023 - 2028 page for information.

During October 2022, we launched 3 private sector surveys to help develop our 2023-2028 LHS and understand the different elements of Private Sector Housing.

The summary reports below present the feedback we received from the surveys. These findings have been fed into our next LHS.
