Sefton Housing Strategy 2016 - 2021
Housing should provide a secure foundation for individuals to live the lives they want to live. Finding the right home, in the right place, can be an essential platform for people seeking to support their families and sustain work. Within Sefton, access to suitable, good quality and affordable housing is a key priority for all its residents and communities.
Our Housing Strategy sets out the Council’s vision and aims for housing in the Borough for the next five years. It describes the key priorities affecting the local housing market and what the Council intends to do to help overcome these challenges and create the right conditions to improve housing outcomes for the benefit of local people.
This strategy has been developed through an extensive process of consultation with key partners and other stakeholders and we would like to thank all those who have contributed and helped to develop this strategy.

The framework contains action points, targets and timescales to meet the housing priority topics, but is also flexible and responsive to changes in market conditions, new opportunities and will also introduce new issues/topics as they arise, such as changing legislation and new governmental policy.
Sefton’s Housing Strategy is supported by further documents to ensure that the strategy is effective, deliverable and intelligence driven using robust evidence sources. These documents will be developed and published over the coming year
