How is housing organised in in
          Medway?
• Big Medway 2011-2014
  housing plan (strategy) for
  everyone in Medway

 Big Medway Housing Target –
     ‘Affordable Housing’

Over the last few years, house
prices gone up a lot across the
country and many people are
now not able to buy or rent
housing without Council help.

‘Affordable housing’ in Medway
helps people (in the most need)
to be able to afford to buy or
rent housing in Medway.
  Challenge - ‘Affordable Housing’

Each year Medway advertises about
700 ‘affordable housing’ properties

But ….. each year 15,000 people say
they need to live in ‘affordable
housing’ in Medway

This means Medway need to:
– Build lots more affordable housing
– Understand who these need to be built
  for
 Understanding Learning Disability
     Housing Plans in Medway

• Medway Council has just
  started working with the
  Institute of Public Care (IPC)
  to do a Medway Learning
  Disability Housing Needs
  Assessment

• ‘Needs Assessments’ let
  people know ‘what is needed’
  about something and who
  needs it.
  Housing Work plan for the
     Partnership Board
• We would like to have a clear
  housing work plan for the
  Partnership Board.

• We would like to have the
  housing work plan around the
  3 main areas people on the
  Partnership Board think are
  working and ‘not working’.
