Minutes:

The Committee considered the report of the Director of Service Delivery to agree an extension to the Homelessness and Housing Strategy from 2018 - 2023 to 2018 - 2025.

 

The Chairman introduced the report and deferred to the Specialist Services Manager to present the detail.  She advised the Committee that the Housing Strategy, first drafted in 2018, contained a number of essential ongoing functions and actions yet to be delivered, hence the request for an extension.  The strategy covered a wide range of areas from Homelessness to Private Sector and Housing Development.  The purpose of the strategy was to explain the current service, the context in which it was delivered , to set out departmental goals and the actions required to deliver those goals.  The Housing Audit in 2021 recommended that the strategy be extended to 2025 as many actions were still relevant.  It was reported that the strategy had undergone a minor adjustment to ensure it aligned with the goals in the Council’s Corporate Plan.

 

The Chairman and Members thanked the Housing Officers for their work.  She then moved the recommendations and they were seconded by Councillor Fluker and agreed by assent.

 

RESOLVED

 

(i)               That the Committee agreed the recommendations of the Council’s Auditor BDO which advocated that the Council’s Homelessness and Housing Strategy be extended;

 

(ii)             That the proposed amendment and two year extension to the Homelessness and Housing Strategy so that Officers continued to deliver against the objectives therein, be agreed.
