Housing strategy and delivery plan - Housing strategy delivery plan

The Delivery Plan is designed to be a working document which will focus activity around the key areas which will help to address the issues identified throughout the life of the strategy.

The specific actions which contribute to the aims of the Housing Strategy will be captured and measured as they emerge onto a more detailed plan which is held and coordinated by the Strategic Housing team.

An annual Housing Strategy progress report will highlight the key achievements, and how they are helping to address the issues that the Strategy seeks to address.
