West Suffolk Housing Strategy consultation This consultation has been extended and will close on 20 August 2014. Please share your views to help us improve the housing situation for current and future residents.
Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury councils are currently working on a joint draft Housing Strategy that sets out what we, together with our partners will be doing 2015-18 to improve the housing situation for our current and future residents.
These actions will directly contribute to the overall sense of community and wellbeing of West Suffolk.
This work needs to include enabling the supply of new housing; making the best use of existing housing; and offering support or specialist housing to those who require it.
