Arising from a * report of the Head of Housing and Property Services the Decent and Affordable Homes Policy Development Group had recommended that the addendum to the Housing Allocations Policy be approved.
The Cabinet Member for Housing outlined the contents of the report stating the Council no longer had any Sheltered Housing stock and therefore there was a need to redefine stock that was originally classed as Sheltered Housing for elderly persons. Amending the policy would enable the Housing Options team to allocate the accommodation to those who had a medical need for this type of home and make the best use of the Council’s housing stock.
RESOLVED that the addendum to the policy be approved.
(Proposed by Cllr R L Stanley and seconded by Cllr C R Slade)
