Strategies and policies

Wiltshire Council is committed to providing excellent housing services. One of our key priorities is to ensure that we make best use of existing stock and that, working with our partners, we increase the supply of decent new affordable homes in Wiltshire.  

Wiltshire is a large rural authority and is part of several housing markets. It is on the whole an affluent area with high and rising property values. The aims and priorities for strategic housing in Wiltshire over the next five years have been developed through consultation with our customers, our community and our partners. These priorities complement and support wider national and regional priorities, including the Council's community plan. They are based on working in partnership with a range of individuals and agencies, including tenants' groups, and organisations in the public, voluntary and private sectors.

In this section, you can read about how the council's housing services are structured and find our strategic documents and overarching policies.

The community plan can be found in the download section.
