Our local priorities

The North Lincolnshire Housing Strategy [PDF, 71Kb] sets out the plan to meet the housing needs of North Lincolnshire residents. It includes local priorities for improving housing and allows limited resources to be targeted in key areas to make a real difference.

Our strategy is based on housing research and other secondary information sources.

The North Lincolnshire Tenancy Strategy [PDF, 92Kb] explains what social landlords must do when setting their own tenancy policies.

The Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2019 – 2024 [PDF, 445Kb] sets out a new approach to ensure we fully understand homelessness – not just as a social issue to be viewed in isolation, but where the individual and their environments are at the centre of that understanding.

The Strategy outlines six main priorities:

  1. Greater understanding of the causes of rough sleeping with year on year reductions of the sleeping rough in North Lincolnshire. No-one sleeping rough by 2027.
  2. Earlier interventions to prevent homelessness.
  3. Provision of a wide range of appropriate, suitable accommodation for people who are homeless.
  4. Providing targeted support focussing on tenancy related issues.
  5. Maintaining and developing partnership working.
  6. Improving health, wellbeing and resilience of our communities.

Action plans for each of the above priorities are currently in development.

The priorities outlined in the Strategy have resulted from reviewing a number of evidence base documents including consultation with partner organisations.
