Regional Housing Strategies must also align with national priorities and strategies and Ministerial requirements.
Regional Housing Strategies have 3 main purposes:
to influence regional, sub-regional and local strategies across a range of housing priorities such as delivery of affordable housing, energy efficiency, fuel poverty, sustainable design and construction, and fair access to housing policies.
to set out regional housing priorities to steer the use of the accompanying regional investment strategy and its single housing pot
to steer wider investment towards integrated housing, economic and social activity
