Declaration of intent on Housing
Strategic housing policy objectives 9. The Governmentâ€™s key housing policy goal is to ensure that everyone has the opportunity of living in a decent home, which they can afford, in a community where they want to live. To achieve this, the Government is seeking: â€“ To achieve a wide choice of high quality homes, both affordable and market housing, to address the requirements of the community. â€“ To widen opportunities for home ownership and ensure high quality housing for those who cannot afford market housing, in particular those who are vulnerable or in need. â€“ To improve affordability across the housing market, including by increasing the supply of housing. â€“ To create sustainable, inclusive, mixed communities in all areas, both urban and rural.
