Homes

What we are doing NOW and will keep on doing:

  • work to ensure a continuous supply of homes that are affordable to buy or rent and that match the needs of our residents
  • plan to ensure that enough homes will be available to meet the needs of our children and grandchildren
  • work with partners to provide new, independent-living homes for those with learning disabilities
  • continue with the very successful programme of bringing empty properties back into use
  • continue to deliver rural housing schemes
  • continue to allocate affordable homes to local people first
  • fight to maintain services so that no one has to sleep rough on the streets of South Somerset
  • promote the high-quality design of environmentally sustainable homes, wherever and whenever possible.
