Our draft Housing Strategy 2023- 2028 priorities and objectives set out how we plan to deliver housing services in Croydon to meet the needs of our residents.

The context in which the council delivers housing services has changed a great deal in previous years whilst pressures on our housing services have reached unprecedented levels.

New legislation introduced by the government following the Grenfell Tower fire has given more responsibility to councils to improve building and fire safety for both social and private rented tenants. The government has also introduced legislation which requires local authorities to improve conditions in both social and private rented homes, particularly regarding damp and mould following the tragic death of Awaab Ishak. The increased cost of living and private sector rents means the council is also seeing growing numbers of residents needing support and emergency housing.

Our draft priorities and objectives set out how our housing services in Croydon will respond to these challenges and provide the support our residents need.

The draft priorities and objectives, alongside key statistics on housing and housing need in Croydon, are available on the right hand side of the page.

The draft priorities and objectives will provide the overarching strategic direction for existing projects, such as the regeneration of the Regina Road estate, and detail how we will achieve the council's vision of creating great homes, places and communities to enhance life opportunities.

We’ve outlined five priorities, each with specific objectives and we would like to hear your feedback on them - please tell us what you think in our survey.

This survey will close on 02 August. Feedback received will help us to develop a draft of the strategy that will go to cabinet in September 2023 for review.

Have your say at our resident and partner workshop session

We will be holding a workshop session to ask residents and partners what they would like to see the Housing Strategy deliver. The session will be held on 25th July from 18:30- 20:00 online.
