Consultation on Eastbourne Borough Council Housing Strategy 2020-2024

Our draft Housing Strategy 2020-2024 sets out how Eastbourne Borough Council will help meet the housing needs and ambitions of local residents.

The strategy focuses on five key themes:

  • Increasing the supply of new homes
  • Promoting quality housing that meets modern standards
  • Reducing the impact of homelessness
  • Successfully managing and maintaining our council homes
  • Promoting homes that sustain health and wellbeing

Under these themes, the strategy puts forward specific proposals that aim to address the main housing challenges faced by the borough and its residents.

The full strategy and a summary document are available to download below.

Have your say

We would like to hear from local residents, council tenants and leaseholders, landlords, homeowners, community groups, partner organisations and other stakeholders about how well you think the strategy will address the housing needs of Eastbourne residents. 

For organisations and groups we would also like to know the degree to which the draft strategy aligns with those of your organisation and how we could work together to achieve better outcomes.

We have provided an online survey to help you structure your feedback.
