Housing & Homelessness Strategy

Purpose of the consultation

Coventry City Council no longer owns any ‘council housing’ after the stock was transferred to Whitefriars Housing Group in 2000. However, we still have strategic housing duties, and duties towards people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. 

Our homelessness duties have recently changed with the introduction of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017.  

The Council must have an up to date Homelessness Strategy, and we have decided to combine the Housing Strategy and the Homelessness Strategy into one document. 

We have written a new Draft Housing & Homelessness Strategy for the period 2019 to 2024.  

We are now consulting on this Draft Housing & Homelessness Strategy, to make sure that we have the right priorities for the next five years, and the right actions planned to deliver those priorities. 

We have put together a short survey with some questions about the Draft Strategy which is available here:


It would be helpful to you if you have read the Draft Housing & Homelessness Strategy before starting the survey.  

The deadline for responses is 18th December 2018 

The results will be reviewed and any necessary changes to the Draft Strategy will be made.

The Final Housing & Homelessness Strategy will be presented to Cabinet and Council in early 2019 and considered for approval by them
