Housing and related strategies

Housing and Homelessness Strategy

"A place to call home" is the Housing and Homelessness Strategy for Bradford District 2014-2019. The strategy represents the commitment of the Council and its partners to meet the housing needs of the residents of Bradford district.

Our four main objectives are:

  • More homes 
  • Safe and healthy homes 
  • Affordable homes 
  • Support independence and prevent homelessness

The strategy can be downloaded below along with the Evidence Base document.

 

Housing strategy for the over 50s

“Great Places to Grow Old” is Bradford’s housing strategy for the over 50s 2011-2010 and sits under the joint housing strategy for the district. The strategy was developed in consultation with the district's Older People’s Partnership.

 

Bradford Local Investment Plan 2011-2020

The Bradford Local Investment Plan sets out the housing investment requirements for the next three years, which are necessary for supporting the delivery of Bradford’s Housing and Economic Strategies and underpinning wider economic success across the district.

 

Tackling Empty Homes in the Bradford District: Delivery Plan 2011-2014

"Tackling Empty Homes in the Bradford District: Delivery Plan 2011-2014" is Bradford's strategy for dealing with empty homes in the district. The strategy looks at how we can bring more empty homes back into use and sits under the joint housing strategy for the district.

 

Tenancy Strategy

The Bradford Council Tenancy Strategy sets out how the Council would see Registered Providers (Housing Associations) using Lifetime or Fixed Term tenancies. The Council supports the continued use of Lifetime (assured) tenancies as opposed to Fixed Term tenancies, in the social housing sector. The strategy sets out two principles that Registered Providers should have regard to when formulating their tenancy policies and other related business plans:

Principle One: Stability for vulnerable tenants
Principle Two: Flexibility

The Localism Act required all local authorities with housing responsibility to produce a Tenancy Strategy.

Housing Allocations Policy

The Housing Allocations Policy is a shared policy between the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Incommunities Group Ltd and other Registered Providers of social housing operating in the district. The policy relates to the allocation of social housing in the district.
