Our Housing Strategy for the borough was adopted in March 2010 and sets out our objectives for housing up to 2014.
Our objectives for housing in Gedling are:
The Housing Strategy does not cover how many new homes should be built in Gedling or where they should be located. This is dealt with by our Local Development Framework.
In 2012, we worked with Broxtowe and Rushcliffe borough councils to carry out a full review of homelessness in the South Nottinghamshire area. This included widespread consultation with local service providers and the voluntary sector. We then based our joint homelessness strategy [2,788kb] on the findings of this review. We have brought together a South Notts Interagency Homelessness Forum to manage the strategy and make sure its action plan is put into practice. If you would like further details, or to be involved in the forum, please contact us using the details at the right of this page.
We have adopted a joint tenancy strategy [102kb] with Broxtowe Borough Council and Nottingham City Council, which sets out the matters that housing associations must consider when setting their tenancy policies. These policies will decide how they will manage social housing,and what type of tenancies they will offer to new tenants. Gedling Borough Council does not have any direct say in what type of tenancy is issued to a particular person.
We use a number of data sources to monitor the local housing market and assess local housing needs. Several of these are linked to at the right of this page. If you are looking for general information about Gedling or a small area within it (e.g. a ward or Census Output Area), you may find Gedling Insight and Neighbourhood Statistics particularly useful.
