New Tenancy Strategy

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) presenting the Council Tenancy Strategy 2024-29.




That the updated Tenancy Strategy 2024-29, as set out in Appendix 1 to the submitted report, be approved, in particular:


1. The Council’s stance/ask of RPs with regards to the use of flexible/fixed term tenancies.


2. The Council’s position on how fixed term/flexible tenancies interplay with domestic abuse.


3. The council’s proposal on affordable rent.


Reasons for decision:


Approval of the Council’s Tenancy Strategy is required as the current strategy has expired and the Council is legally required to have one in place.


Other options:


1. Continue with the current out-of-date strategy which is no longer fit for purpose.


2. Decide not to have a Tenancy Strategy, but the Council would not be fulfilling its legal requirements.


3. Delay implementation and find/fund officer resource to undertake further revisions and subsequent consultation/engagement.
