Somerset Housing Strategy

Somerset Strategic Housing Framework

The pdf icon draft Somerset Strategic Housing Framework [976kb] 2018 - 2023 has a vision that seeks to achieve the following:

  • Strong and effective strategic leadership
  • A local economy that provides opportunity for all
  • Homes in Somerset that are good for your health
  • A society that supports the vulnerable

The vision will be delivered by a range of supporting Priorities and Ambitions.

There was a public consultation during the Spring of 2018. This sought comment on the draft Vision, Priority and Ambitions. We are currently considering the responses to the consultation and making amendments to the Housing Framework. We shall publish the final version of the SSHF during January 2019.

Background Information

To support the review of the Framework, each Somerset district and the County Council has produced Housing Market Profiles to highlight key issues, achievements, opportunities and challenges.

A very successful and well-attended Strategic Housing Framework conference was organised as part of the review on July 12th 2017 at Taunton Rugby Club, with over one hundred delegates attending.

The consultation responses on the Housing Market Profiles and the pdf icon Workshop Summary [257kb] were used to inform the content of the Draft Somerset Strategic Housing Framework and Consultation Questionnaire.  The countywide consultation closed on 30th April 2018.
