We have produced a Housing Strategy for 2015 to 2020. Our vision is:
We want to enable the provision and choice of homes where people can thrive, this helps our economy by offering security and settled homes for longer, promoting health and wellbeing and reduces the impact on the environment. We want to help our communities to recognise and tackle the inequality faced by families and the vulnerable.
We have developed an overarching document that focuses on three key elements and co-ordinates a number of housing and health related priorities:
- Meeting Housing Demand
- Housing Commissioning 'My Home is My Life', (includes the Homelessness Strategy)
- Improving the Quality of Homes
The strategy is made up of four documents:
Our housing strategy for the next 5 years in Torbay.
How the Torbay Housing Partnership will deliver housing objectives over the next 5 years.
How we will tackle and prevent homelessness in Torbay over the next 5 years.
This needs assessment illustrates the housing and health profile and needs of the population, and the links between housing and health.
Further documents which are not part of the Housing Strategy have also been completed:
This report aims to identify the need for specialist housing in Torbay, focusing on the social housing sector.
This strategy forms part of Torbay’s Market Position statement and subsequent Market Strategy, Housing Strategy and supports TSDFT’s new model of care.
