The Group had before it, and NOTED, a report * from the Director of Operations providing Members with an update on performance against the Corporate Plan and local service targets for 2018/19 as well as providing an update on the key business risks.
The following was highlighted within the report and brief discussion took place regarding:
· The Housing service had hosted a very successful regional meeting for the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS). The event had been attended by 50 external attendees and four of the Council’s own involved tenants. Representatives from the Regulator for Social Housing and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government were also present. Three Officers and an involved tenant, David Taylor, gave a presentation about the Council’s approach to tenant involvement which was very well received.
· The risk presented by Homelessness and insufficient resources to support an increased homeless population which could result in a failure to meet the statutory duty to provide advice and assistance to anyone who was homeless. In mitigation of this risk it was explained that the Housing service had implemented a staffing restructure to build capacity and it was planning to convert an existing property to provide more temporary accommodation.
