You will need to look at the strategy document to answer most of the questions in the consultation. You can download and read a copy at on this page.

Our vision for housing is:

To enable everyone living on the Island to have a place they call home 

The strategy is supported by the existing Corporate Plan and Regeneration Strategy, and helps shape and inform the draft Island Planning Strategy which is going through the formal stages to adoption. A draft Housing Strategy has now been produced. This is not the final document but is for consultation. The consultation will run until Friday 13 March 2020 and will be used to develop the final Housing Strategy, which will be published and adopted by the Isle of Wight Council later in 2020.  

Giving feedback

We welcome feedback on any aspect of the draft strategy – including not only the content as it stands but also things that you think should be included.

There are also some particular questions we want to hear your views on – these are highlighted in the strategy.

Please send all feedback to regeneration@iow.gov.uk


To inform the final strategy, views on individual housing needs are also being sought via the Housing Needs Survey – this survey is running until 16 February 2020.
