Colchester's Housing Strategy 2015-20 has been developed by the Housing Strategy Partnership which includes Colchester Borough Council and its Partner Organisations.

The Housing Strategy sets out the Council's ambitions for housing in Colchester over the next 5 years. The Strategy will achieve its aims and objectives through the implementation of the Delivery Plan by working closely with a wide range of partners to achieve the vision for housing in Colchester.

Research and information on housing in Colchester have been used to develop an Evidence base for the strategy.

The Housing Strategy Progress Report 2019/2020 along with the updated Delivery Plan are available to download below
