Housing Strategy

Affordable Housing Strategy 2020 to 2025

This Strategy sets out our vision for improvement in the delivery of affordable housing to meet local needs. It builds on a strong track record of delivery and takes account of the progress achieved through the Affordable Housing Position Statement 2016. Since 2004/05 to 2018/19 much needed new affordable homes have been completed in Mole Valley. This has been achieved in spite of reduced government capital subsidy, high land values, changes to the National Planning Policy Framework on affordable housing, and significant areas of Green Belt, open countryside and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Strategic Housing Market Assessments

A Strategic Housing Market Assessment was undertaken in 2015/2016 (see 'Downloads').

Mole Valley's Tenancy Strategy 2018-23

The Localism Act 2011 requires each local authority to produce a tenancy strategy. A tenancy strategy is a plan that sets out how housing association homes in an area are let. It provides a framework for the type of tenancies housing associations should use and how long these tenancies should be granted for. Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) intends the strategy to make best use of the stock so that more people in housing need can be helped. This has recently been updated - (see 'Downloads').
