The York, North Yorkshire and East Riding (YNYER) Housing Strategy (2015 to 2021) lays out plans for dealing with York's key housing issues within a regional housing strategy.
The strategy's vision includes:
- enabling more new homes to be built
- building housing of a quality, type and size which meets the needs of all communities
- supporting economic growth
Our strategy also includes delivering housing priorities set out in the government's Local Growth Deals.
Our priorities for housing
Our strategy includes 9 housing priorities:
- work with partners to increase the supply of good quality new housing across all tenures and locations
- ensure our housing stock reflects the needs of urban, rural and coastal communities
- ensure our housing stock meets the diverse needs of our population at all stages of their lives
- ensure new homes are of good design and environmental quality regardless of tenure
- continue to make the best use of our existing stock and ensure that it is of a decent quality
- ensure all homes have a positive impact on health and wellbeing, and are affordable to run
- continue to reduce homelessness
- ensure housing is allocated fairly and on the basis of need
- provide appropriate housing and support for those with specific housing needs
How our housing priorities were developed
Our strategy is based on strong evidence gathered from a range of surveys and consultations; it's the result of a collaboration between the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), the Housing Board and our stakeholders.
