“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.
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" 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.
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.
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.
