Consultation launched on new housing strategy

People are being invited to express their views on a new strategy to help people in Eastbourne meet their housing needs.

Eastbourne Borough Council has launched a consultation on its draft Housing Strategy 2020-2024, which runs until 5pm on Monday, 17 February.

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

Councillor Alan Shuttleworth, Cabinet Member for Direct Assistance Services, said: “We hope to hear from as many people as possible about how well they think this strategy addresses the housing needs of Eastbourne residents. This includes everyone from local residents to council tenants and leaseholders, landlords, homeowners and community groups.”
