Publication of Shropshire homelessness strategy

Our goal

The homelessness strategy for Shropshire will establish the action plan for addressing the needs of the homeless and those at risk of homelessness

Bigger values are best

Housing authorities are required to conduct a homelessness review and develop a strategy based on the results of that review. Shropshire Council is currently working towards the adoption of its new strategy in December 2019.

Key milestones for this measure are:

Milestone Due By Status
Completion of review and consultation October 2019  On track
Draft strategy developed November 2019  Delayed
Strategy presented to cabinet December 2019  Delayed

This deadline was extended in agreement with Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). Due to resources having to be directed to work on flooding and Covid19 this has still not been finalised.  The aim is to have a draft document ready for consultation towards the end of summer.
