Housing strategy

Council plan

The council plan 2018 – 22 sets out a vision of good local services, a prosperous borough, and safe and welcoming places for all. There are four priorities to deliver the outcomes.

Our key priorities for the housing strategy 2021-24 contribute to achieving this overarching vision.

Local services that work for local people

This underpins everything we do. Our aim is to be a council that listens to its local residents and communities by being responsive to their needs, and to work with them to deliver first class services.

Growing our people and places

We aim to build a strong and sustainable economy to ensure opportunities and support are available to everyone to improve their lives.

A healthy, active and safe borough

We will ensure everyone enjoys a safe environment, and access to a wide range of facilities and activities to support residents and visitors to improve their health and quality of life.

A town centre for all

Creating two vibrant town centres in Newcastle and Kidsgrove where everyone can live, work, shop, study and spend their leisure time.
