Slough to agree housing plan

A plan that sets out the council’s housing priorities for the next five years will go before Slough’s Cabinet.

Officers will seek members’ approval of the draft Housing Strategy (2016-2021) ahead of a public consultation on the document in January.

The strategy has been developed alongside the new Local Plan (2016-2036) and is broken down into five key themes that reflect the council’s desire to ensure everyone has access to a decent quality home.

Priorities include ensuring there is the right supply and mix of new and affordable homes, that there are enough good quality private rental homes, and that all council homes are maintained to a high standard.

Councillor Zaffar Ajaib, commissioner for housing and urban renewal, said: “The huge demand for decent, affordable homes is one of the biggest issues we’re facing in Slough today.”
