Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)
Salford’s most recent housing strategy ‘Shaping Housing in Salford 2020’ was developed in 2016 and a decision was made in January 2019 to update it in light of changes within housing and the wider cross cutting sectors.
A collaborative approach has been applied to the production of the revised housing strategy and delivery plan, including consultation with a wide range of stakeholders to inform the development of key objectives and priorities, along with activities identified to achieve those priorities.
The key findings identified following the analysis of the strategic/policy drivers and local data/trends was used to inform the draft priorities and objectives.
Further public consultation and collaboration with key stakeholders has assisted in finalising the delivery plan and strategy document.
Do nothing – This is not considered an option due to:
The strategy identifies a number of key priorities and objectives with key delivery outcomes which will be monitored through the action plan. Risks in terms of the delivery of the priorities and objectives will be reviewed annually. It is recognised that there are a number of outcomes which if not delivered carry risks. Mitigating these risks will be a key part of the action plan monitoring.
The source of funding is within available budgets or work to be undertaken to identify additional funding as appropriate.
