Housing strategy out for consultation


The University is conducting a public consultation process on its draft housing strategy. The strategy outlines the University's policies and practice on student housing and addresses a wide range of issues, from University-run accommodation through to existing initiatives, such as crime prevention partnerships and the neighbourhood helpline, aimed at mitigating the impact of the student housing market in Leeds.

New initiatives which the University puts forward in the strategy include working with the city council to tie student housing into city regeneration, dispersal of student accommodation to different areas of Leeds and communication and consultation with the community and key stakeholders. The strategy can be seen online at

Head of the city and regional office, Ceri Nursaw said: “We were one of the first universities to develop a community strategy back in 2000 and are now the first to develop a public housing strategy, demonstrating our commitment to Leeds and its communities.”

The strategy has been sent to key partners and community groups. The consultation period will run until 2 May 2003 and all responses will be used to help frame the final strategy to be published in June 2003. Comments should be sent to Gavin Betts in the city and regional office on ext 31062 email
