Tameside Housing Strategy

Longlands Mill, Stalybridge


The Greater Manchester Housing Strategy

Safe, decent and affordable housing is a priority across Greater Manchester. The Greater Manchester Housing Strategy sets strategic actions at a city-region level.

Adopted by GMCA in June 2019, it identifies how Tameside, working with the other local authorities in Greater Manchester, can maximise the impact of our collective effort to deliver the homes we need for our citizens.

The Tameside Housing Strategy

Following adoption of the Greater Manchester Housing Strategy in 2019, the Tameside Housing Strategy is currently in development. An extensive consultation will take place in 2020.

Tameside faces a number of challenges including access to homeownership, creating affordable housing, meeting the needs of an ageing population, improving our private rented sector, and tackling homelessness.

The ambitions of this integrated housing strategy will reflect the aspirations of ‘Our People, Our Place, Our Plan’, adopted by Tameside and Glossop Strategic Commission in February 2019.
 

Research and Evidence

 
Our strategic direction is informed by a robust evidence base at a national, city-region and local level. Two documents in particular have informed our approach to housing markets and its close relationship to Tameside communities and the economy:
 

Greater Manchester Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA)

 
The purpose of the SHMA is develop a robust understanding of housing market dynamics and to provide an assessment of future needs for both market and affordable housing and the housing needs of different groups within the population over the next twenty years.
 
The January 2019 Greater Manchester SHMA and a separate summary report can be downloaded below.

Tameside Housing Needs Assessment (HNA)

 
The Tameside Housing Need Assessment (HNA) provides a strong evidence base to help to shape the future planning and housing policies of the area. It contains a review of existing (secondary) data; an analysis of the findings of a household survey; interviews with key stakeholders; an assessment of housing need and affordable housing requirements; and an analysis of the housing needs of specific groups of people.

Housing strategy is also closely linked to a series of planning documents
