Housing Update pdf icon PDF 542 KB

Report of Deputy Chief Executive (People)

Minutes:

The Cabinet considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (People) providing an update on two key elements of the Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy, namely housing supply and a proposed Acquisitions Programme for Council Housing.

 

Resolved:

 

1.     That the work to develop a regeneration framework and pipeline of housing and regeneration projects, including the potential to establish a revolving investment fund to deliver the pipeline, with a report coming forward to Cabinet in September 2019, be agreed.

 

2.     That the process for responding to third party approaches is agreed for implementation.

 

3.     To proceed with the Acquisitions Programme for Council Housing as agreed in the Council’s Housing, Homelessness & Rough Sleeping Strategy.

 

4.     That a capital budget of £4.3M be created within the Housing Revenue Account (HRA) capital programme for 2019/20 to facilitate the Acquisitions Programme, funded 30% from retained Right to Buy Capital receipts and 70% from HRA Capital Investment Reserve.

 

Recommended:

 

5.     That the delegated authority to the S151 Officer for property acquisitions and disposals for the sign off of the property acquisitions in Part 3, Schedule 3, Section 4 of the Constitution be amended to increase the value from £250,000 to £500,000.

 

Reasons for Decision:

 

The Acquisitions Programme for additional council housing is recommended as there is an established need for affordable housing within the Borough as demonstrated by the local Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA), and by our own Homes Seeker’s Register data.

 

The formation of an Acquisitions Programme for council housing would result in an increase in the levels of affordable housing in the short term. This increase in the Borough’s affordable housing stock may assist in reducing reliance on more expensive temporary accommodation.

 

Other Options:

 

Do Nothing – This option considered not creating an Acquisitions Programme. This approach however would result in a repayment of Right to Buy funds to HM Treasury, would not increase council housing stock and would also not help the Council to meet its 2050 Vision or contribute to the 2050 road map.

 

Transfer the funds as grant to a Registered Provider (RP) – This option would see the Right to Buy funds given to RP’s as a grant to build affordable housing, with nomination rights given to the Council. This approach would not however be achievable in the given timescales.

 

Note: The decisions in 1-4 above constitute an Executive Function. The decision in 5 above constitutes a Council Function.

Notice of Motion - Traveller incursions in the Borough - Recommendations from Council 13th June 2019 pdf icon PDF 55 KB

Minutes:

At the meeting of the extraordinary Council held on the 13th June 2019 a Notice of Motion was considered on traveller incursions in the Borough. The Council resolved to recommend to Cabinet that proposals 1 – 3 of the Motion be adopted, but that proposal 4 in relation to a Borough wide injunction not be pursued (Minute 25 refers).

 

The Cabinet member for Public Protection confirmed that a stakeholder meeting, to include Council officers and the Police, would be held on 9th July 2019 to determine the best way forward to gather evidence of future illegal traveller encampments on Council land.

 

Resolved:

 

1.     That the Council will take a proactive approach and take any additional measures that are required to secure our public open spaces in the Borough by working closely with the business community, councillors and local residents on cost effective, practical and innovative solutions that help prevent illegal encampments whilst maintaining access for residents where possible.

 

2.     That the Council will continue to adopt a strong stance in order to permanently prevent travellers from illegally occupying public spaces in the future.

 

3.     That the Council will take measures to improve communication with local residents when unauthorised encampments do occur, to ensure clear and regular communications that Councillors distribute to residents where such issues have arisen in their wards.

 

4.     That the Council will not pursue an injunction at the present time as the evidence to support such proceedings is insufficient. However, going forward evidence will be systematically gathered in respect of illegal traveller encampments on Council land and the harm caused. Such evidence could then be used to support an application for a borough-wide injunction if such proceedings can be justified.
