Arising from a report of the Group Manager for Building Services, the Homes Policy Development Group had recommended that the revised Void Management Policy be approved and that the term of the policy be extended to 10 years.
The Cabinet Member for Housing outlined the contents of the report stating that the revised policy was a guide to tenants and officers on how the authority managed void properties in that how the properties should be left and what was available to new tenants. The revised policy had been aligned to the latest tenancy agreements and the recent Recharges Policy. It was envisaged that the policy have a 10 year lifespan.
RESOLVED that the recommendation of the Policy Development Group be approved.
(Proposed by Cllr R L Stanley and seconded by Cllr P H D Hare-Scott)
