We will provide access to good quality and affordable housing, increasing the supply of new homes.

We will build more council owned homes while working with partners to provide greater numbers of affordable housing, while increasing the overall supply, including more shared ownership housing to help low and middle- income earners get on the property ladder.

We will encourage owners to bring back into use more empty homes.
