Increasing council homes

Our city, like many across the country, has a growing demand for affordable housing.

We have embarked on an ambitious programme to deliver a programme of additional new council homes by 2029 – a combination of new builds and purchased properties. Our aim is to provide more choice of good quality and affordable homes for current residents and those who choose to live and work here in the future.

We are building new, environmentally friendly council properties where we know there is high demand for housing.

Homes for All Delivery plan

Our new ‘Homes for All’ Delivery plan sets out how we will provide new housing stock in the city that will support strong neighbourhoods, boost regeneration, and help people feel safe, warm and well.

It aims to make access to housing fair and remove any inequalities that exist.

The plan also describes how we will work with the private sector to create a mixed balance of quality housing for private sale, private rent and affordable rent.
