Additional documents:


The Head of Housing and Community Services introduced the report, explaining that it was a legal requirement for all housing authorities to publish a tenancy strategy. As Maidstone Borough Council had its own portfolio of temporary accommodation as well as the ambition to deliver its own housing stock, it was felt that the Tenancy Strategy required an update.


In response to questions, the Head of Housing and Community Services explained that the Tenancy Strategy was intended as a high-level document, and not to capture all obligations of landlords and tenants. It would be used by external partners and so would not capture individual policies. Assurance was given that the Pet Policy previously agreed would remain in place.




1.  The draft Tenancy Strategy 2020-2026, attached at Appendix 1 to the report, be approved for consultation with local Registered Providers of Social Housing; and


2.  A further report be brought back to Committee by the Head of Housing and Community Services, with comments by Registered Providers of Social Housing, to enable the Tenancy Strategy 2021-2026 to be adopted.
