Reasons for the Recommendations
In line with the Localism Act 2011 and Regulatory Standards, it is a requirement for social landlords to have a policy in place which sets out their approach to offering tenancies and making best use of stock, as well as how they will manage and sustain tenancies.
The proposed Tenancy Policy sets out the Council’s revised approach.
