Sandwell Council Housing Asset Management Strategy 2024-2029

Closed 13 Oct 2023

Opened 15 Sep 2023


We wanted your views on our new draft Housing Asset Management Strategy 2024-2029. It sets out how we will manage and look after our council housing and buildings, land spaces, play areas and garages.

It will guide our future strategic property decisions to make sure we manage our portfolio sustainably and efficiently so that it can adapt to remain fit for the future and support frontline delivery.

Our assets are an important part of supporting and enabling us to transform the way we deliver public services with our partners and it is therefore essential that we have an innovative and forward thinking strategy in place.

The strategy will guide our approach over the next 5 years in how we look after this and invest in the future. We are seeking your views to help us.

The last strategy was written in 2017. A lot has changed since then. Today, we have higher building costs, higher interest rates, higher cost-of-living and new legal standards to meet.

Housing need and demand in Sandwell is also higher. There are more people approaching us for affordable housing. We need to increase the right types of homes in the right places. Through building, changing, buying and adapting homes. This new draft strategy will help us plan our approach and make Sandwell Council “a great place to live and work”.

Why your views matter

It is really important that we have the perspectives of as many people as possible who live and work in Sandwell every day when developing the strategy. We want to make sure that everyone has had an opportunity to be part of shaping this with us and look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible.
