Access to good quality, safe, affordable housing is one of the most important and essential things we as a Council can help to provide.
To help us achieve this, we are producing a written plan which outlines how we intend to work with our partner organisations to provide housing which best meets the needs of our population.
Our new Local Housing Strategy 2018-2023 will set out a 5-year vision for housing supply and housing-related services in the County Borough.
It will recognise individual needs, working to improve housing and housing-related services for tenants and residents.
We want to hear from all of you
Although it will be published as a Council document, the strategy is intended to cover all types and tenures of housing and not just those that are socially rented.
To help us produce the plan, it is essential that we can gather your thoughts and opinions on what you think the priorities and aims for housing in Wrexham should be over the next few years.
You might be a council tenant or a homeowner, or perhaps you live in a private rented property.
Whatever your housing situation, we want to hear from you!
We are also very keen to capture views from developers, landlords and professionals that have an interest in housing or housing related services.
‘Vital’ to have a plan for the future
Lead Member for Housing, Cllr David Griffiths, said: “This is a particularly busy time for housing in Wrexham, with new developments in the pipeline and all sorts of improvement work being carried to thousands of homes and communities across the County Borough.”
“The need for more good quality housing continues to be a priority for us as a council so it is vital that we have a plan in place that will help us deliver this in way which joins the dots between the various types of accommodation on offer and which best recognises the needs and aspirations of our growing population.”
