We are developing a new housing strategy for South Gloucestershire.

The aim is to help everyone in South Gloucestershire to access housing that meets their needs and that they can afford.

Housing plays an important role in helping to:

  • reduce inequalities
  • give children the best start in life
  • improve health and wellbeing
  • support people to reach their full potential

About the strategy

The strategy will be used to improve the delivery of high quality housing.

We will be ambitious, requiring all new housing, regeneration and retrofitting of existing homes to achieve net zero carbon by 2030.

Our vision

In 30 years time everyone in South Gloucestershire will live in a healthy, affordable, low energy and low carbon, climate resilient home that meets their needs within a safe, sustainable, and thriving local community which is accessible to all.

What it means

By putting this strategy into action over the next 30 years (to 2052), we aim to provide:

  • a home for everyone that meets their needs
  • sustainable homes for the future
  • thriving communities and neighbourhoods

We are committed to responding to:

  • the climate and nature emergency
  • health and wellbeing
  • equal opportunities

The values of our housing strategy must be linked to the Council Plan and our other relevant plans and strategies.

The strategy will be reviewed regularly to make sure it continues to respond to housing needs across South Gloucestershire, and reflects changes in national policy, legislation and strategy.
