Our strategy includes investment in new homes, improvements to existing homes and neighbourhoods and sets our priorities for the next three years.
A key part of our strategy is supporting the delivery of new and improved housing. We work to prevent people becoming homeless and provide support and advice to meet individual needs.
We continue to make the most of new funding opportunities and innovations working with our partners. We are committed to consulting and working with local communities, finding ways to meet their ambitions.

Hull Housing Growth Plan
The majority of new build housing in Hull will be delivered by the market without any intervention by Hull City Council. It is however recognised that the market alone will not deliver enough housing to meet future need.
Hull’s Housing Growth Plan therefore sets out how Hull City Council will support and stimulate new housing delivery in order to fulfill the objective set out in the Local Plan for an additional 620 new homes each year.
