Havant Borough Council has produced a draft Housing Strategy for the next five years (2024-2029) and we want to hear the views of our residents, partners and communities.   

The Council is seeking to adopt the strategy to provide the strategic direction for the council and partner organisations to meet the housing needs and demands of local people. The four key aims proposed within the draft strategy are as follows: 

  • Aim 1 - Preventing homelessness and helping those who are homeless to move on to stable housing solutions. 
  • Aim 2 - Increasing the supply of housing, including affordable housing   
  • Aim 3 - Helping housing choices to enable independence. 
  • Aim 4 - Improving the quality of rented housing stock 

You can view the draft Housing Strategy document here.

We want to hear from you on what the strategy should focus on and prioritise over the next few years.
