Bristol Housing Strategy

Our housing strategy: More than a roof was adopted by Full Council in December 2015.

It sets out plans to address housing related issues for the period 2016 to 2020 and focuses on new directions and proposals. 

It has a vision that homes are more than just the house itself.

We want everyone to have a high quality of life and an opportunity for all to thrive in mixed communities of their choice.
