Following a *report of the Operations Manager for Housing Services, the Homes Policy Development Group had made the following recommendation: that the draft Tenant Involvement and Empowerment Standard policy be approved.
The Cabinet Member for Housing and Property Services outlined the contents of the report stating that the role of social landlord was very important and that there was a need to encourage engagement and empower tenants within the district.
Consideration was given to repairs and the timescales for attention.
RESOLVED that the draft Tenant Involvement and Empowerment Standard Policy be approved.
(Proposed by Cllr R B Evans and seconded by Cllr R J Chesterton)
Reason for the decision - Agreed housing policy provides a framework for decision-making which ensures that customer-facing teams deliver consistency in the discharge of duties to support good housing management. This ensures that both properties and tenancies are managed effectively and reduces reputational risk.
