Housing Strategy

The council’s housing strategy sets out the framework for the council to meet the housing challenges in the borough. It aims to ensure that the resources the council has to tackle housing challenges are co-ordinated to maximise the benefits.


Tenancy Strategy

The tenancy strategy sets out our approach to granting tenancies for affordable housing in Chesterfield. In line with government guidance, registered providers of affordable rented homes in the borough, including housing associations, will need to take account of our policy when granting tenancies. Please select the link above to view the strategy.


Homelessness Strategy

A joint strategy with Bolsover District Council and North East Derbyshire District Council has been completed which addresses homelessness across North Derbyshire. You can view the strategy by clicking on the link above.

Strategic Housing Market Assessment

A Strategic Housing Market Assessment for the North Derbyshire and Bassetlaw Housing Market Area (Chesterfield Borough Council, North East Derbyshire District Council, Bolsover District Council, Bassetlaw District Council) has been completed. The assessment identifies the housing needs for all tenures within the area covered by the authorities.

There are:
