Lincoln Housing Strategy

This Housing Strategy directly tackles the key issues within Lincoln’s housing provision. It also seeks to provide a framework for those endeavouring to build or assist in improving housing conditions in the city. The strategy offers guidance as to the housing that is most needed and how issues should be constructively addressed. It is strong on actions seeking to redress the current ills of the local housing market.

This strategy highlights the main issues facing the city:

  • The need for additional new homes of all tenures 
  • The need for fully co-ordinated supported housing provision across the City whether that be for the elderly or for those with additional needs
  • The need to ensure that the Council’s homeless prevention policies continue to be implemented in full 
  • The need to tackle entrenched rough sleeping in a way that engages with agencies providing support for related issues 
  • Poor housing conditions of the private rented sector 
  • Lack of affordability in the local housing market
