We have a range of strategies that are designed to help us meet the housing need of the people of Dudley. These strategies are listed below along with a brief summary.

Housing Strategy

The borough’s Housing Strategy sets out our strategic aims and the key housing challenges for the future.

Homelessness Strategy and Review

The Homelessness Act 2002 imposes a duty on local housing authorities to formulate and publish a homelessness strategy based on the results of its homelessness review. The strategy contains information on local levels of homelessness and rough sleeping and how we work with a range of households, partner agencies and voluntary sector organisations to help prevent homelessness from occurring.

 Our key objectives for 2019 – 2021 are:

  • To maintain low levels of homelessness within the Borough
  • An aspiration to have zero rough sleepers in the Borough
  • To increase homelessness prevention activities and resources
  • To maintain low levels of temporary accommodation use
  • Review opportunities to increase the supply of supported/specialist housing
  • To implement the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 and maintain compliance with MHCLG guidelines
  • To increase the supply of new affordable housing

Housing Renewal Policy

This Housing Renewal Policy has been adopted by the council to implement the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Housing Assistance) (England and Wales) Order 2002. This gives councils wider powers to offer assistance. Enquiries about this policy should be addressed to: Housing Services, Dudley MBC, Harbour Buildings, Waterfront West, Brierley Hill, West Midlands DY5 1LN
