Ealing's Tenancy Strategy
The Tenancy Strategy 2012/15 sets out the council's approach and priorities, providing guidance to social housing providers operating in the borough to inform their policies and practices on tenure and rents, in light of recent changes introduced. The strategy fulfils the statutory duty under the Localism Act by providing a broad strategic framework for social housing providers operating in the borough.
Ealing's Homelessness Strategy
The Homelessness Strategy 2009-2014 sets out our commitment to tackling homelessness, its causes and its effects by focussing on partnership working and early intervention to improve the range of housing options offered. As well as tacking homelessness itself Ealing is committed to tackling the causes of social exclusion and enhancing the quality of life of homeless households in the borough.
The Allocations Policy 2012 explains the rules by which council housing is distributed to provide housing for those most in need.
Empty Property Strategy
Our Empty Property Strategy sets out how we can bring empty properties back into use to improve the environment, reduce nuisance and increase the supply of decent and affordable housing for households in housing need.
Ealing Supporting People Strategy
The Supporting People Strategy (pdf) sets out how Ealing will develop supported housing services to best meet identified need.
Housing Needs Survey
DCA research were commissioned to carry out a housing study for the London Borough of Ealing. The study was designed to assess the future requirements for both affordable and market housing.
Private Sector Housing Condition Survey
The Private Sector Housing Condition Survey was carried out in 2010 by CPC Ltd on behalf of the council and published in mid 2011. It was a sample survey of 1,000 dwellings from a total private sector stock of 102,640 dwellings, and covered owner occupied and privately rented stock (excluding social rented housing).
The survey combined a physical survey of the characteristics and condition of the property, as well as socio-economic information. It also estimates the cost of making homes decent, regardless of the source of funding. This survey will help inform our housing strategy, and other strategic documents. It also helps us to target limited resources to those areas, properties and residents in greatest need.
