Local Housing Strategy
Newport City Council’s Local Housing Strategy 2012-2017 sets out the main housing issues facing the city, and how the council and its partner organisations will try to tackle them, so that everyone in Newport has the chance to live in decent, affordable housing which suits their needs
Following stock transfer of over 9,000 properties to Newport City Homes (opens new webpage) in March 2009, the council no longer owns any properties. It continues to hold a housing register in partnership with the Housing Associations in Newport and advertises all social housing vacancies to rent and affordable housing to buy in Newport via the www.homeoptionsnewport.co.uk website (opens new webpage).
See the home options page for further information on renting a property.
Low cost home ownership
The council works in partnership with housing associations and developers to create affordable housing for those who may be unable to afford to buy on the open market. Read more about affordable home ownership options.
Are you over 55? Interested in a new home?
There are a number of options available across the city. A range of accommodation types, with different providers, means that there is more available than you might think. See the ‘Housing for Older People' pages for further information.
The council is committed to assisting vulnerable groups in accessing safe, secure and suitable accommodation. We take a proactive approach to tackling homelessness, providing a comprehensive advice and prevention service. We also work in partnership with a range of agencies to increase the options available for homeless people.
Helping to promote independence and prevent homelessness, Tenancy support is available to help certain tenants who have difficulty in managing their tenancy.
The service provides short term support for tenants with low level needs that do not meet the criteria for existing statutory support.
The council’s Environmental Health Housing team aims to maintain minimum housing standards and protect public health and safety in domestic premises by regulation, enforcement, advice and support.
