Labour Council to set out strategy to tackle homelessness

Northumberland County Council is developing a homelessness strategy which outlines plans to reduce and prevent homelessness by tackling the main causes and improving access to both permanent and temporary accommodation.

The local authority has prepared a draft strategy, which it is consulting on until Friday, October 30. Once adopted, the strategy will be the council’s main plan for the prevention of homelessness in Northumberland, covering the period to 2021.

It sets out the aim, objectives and approach to preventing homelessness across Northumberland; defines how the council will increase the number of households able to remain in their own home, improve access to permanent and temporary accommodation amd work with partners to mitigate the impact of welfare reform and provide more housing solutions for young people; includes a draft action plan which sets out what the council hopes to deliver and by when.

The draft strategy is available online where you can also respond to an online survey.

Alternatively, you can send comments by post to Planning and Housing Policy Team, Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 2EF.
