Review of the Council's Housing Allocations Policy

The Council has an established housing allocations policy in place, that has been refined previously through the decisions made by the Communities Housing and Environment Committee. However, given the ever growing demand for a largely finite pool of affordable housing in the borough, this report undertakes a more fundamental review of the existing policy and makes recommendations as to how it could be amended.

Housing Strategy 2022-27

The proposed themes for the new housing strategy were approved by the CHE Committee in early 2022, and these have since been subject to public consultation. Therefore the new housing strategy, as drafted, takes account of these consultation responses, and is now ready for consideration for adoption.

Council Fire & Building Safety Policy

The role and expectations on all Councilís following the Grenfell tragedy is changing, and so the creation of a new policy to cover work in this area is very important and timely. The report and policy addresses and responds to changing guidance and legislation, as well as provides clarity in terms of best practice in terms of the Council will work to best effect with other authorities through partnership working, to manage risk in the community.
