Cheaper homes bid for county.
The planned programme involves a combination of building hundreds of new council houses, and providing support to housing associations to help deliver almost 1,000 more.
County Hall bosses plan to use their borrowing powers - and transfer council-owned land valued at up to pounds 20m for housing development - in a bid to make significant progress on what has been identified as a key priority by local people.
The moves comes at a time when there are 13,700 applicants on the county's Homefinder social housing register - of whom 7,500 have been assessed as having housing need.
The new strategy proposes building more than 450 council houses over the next five years, and council support to enable housing associations to provide about 900 more. It adds up to 1,356 new units.
