The Local Housing Strategy sets out the housing issues in West Dunbartonshire for the period 2011 to 2016. The strategy shows how the Council and its partners mean to address these issues. It deals with both private and rented housing. The strategy goes with a Strategic Housing Investment Plan which details the funding priorities for affordable housing in West Dunbartonshire. It is the Council's main document on: housing homelessness housing support services, and fuel poverty.
The Glasgow and Clyde Valley Strategic Development Plan Authority Housing Need and Demand Assessment published in June 2011 provides key evidence for the Local Housing Strategy.
