Why do we need a Local Housing Strategy?
The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001, requires all Councils to have a Local Housing Strategy. The purpose of the strategy is to identify and tackle the key areas of concern for housing. This includes providing new housing of all tenures of the size and type that the households of Clackmannanshire require.
Background to the Clackmannanshire Housing Strategy (CHS)
The CHS is the overarching strategic document which highlights the priority issues for housing in Clackmannanshire, including homelessness and fuel poverty, which previously had heir own separate strategies.
Much of the evidence for our Strategy comes from the full assessment of current and future housing need carried out in the Housing Needs and Demand Assessment (HNDA), 2011. This sets out the requirements for both affordable and market housing over the next 10 years.
The information from the HNDA and the Local Development Plan, which is currently under development by the Council's Planning Service, assisted with the development of the CHS.
Detailed Acton Plans will be developed over the next few months, to ensure the key actions identified in the Strategy are achieved.
