At Cannock Chase Council’s meeting last night members approved the four year Housing Revenue Account Capital Programme 2021-22 to 2024-25.
The programme and associated budget will contribute to new social housing in the District and will help to maintainin the standards of our current housing stock.
A strategy is being developed to reflect the new build requirement to increase social housing in Cannock Chase. This will be based on the needs of the District and the land available.
Undertaking a full review of the Capital Programme has ensured that the projects reflected the priorities of the Council as detailed in the Corporate Plan.
Councillor Adrienne Fitzgerald, Portfolio Leader for Housing, Heritage and Leisure said “I am pleased that the budget has been approved by Council. The Covid pandemic has had a detrimental effect on our current capital programme. The revised programme will help us get back on track. The capital programme and associated budget will not only provide zero carbon new homes it will ensure that the retrofit programme of our existing housing stock can progress.”
