To recommend the approval of the Tenancy Strategy.


RESOLVED that the Executive Committee approves the Tenancy Strategy and recommends adoption to Full Council.  Strategy to come into effect on Monday 5 September 2022 in line with the revised Tenancy Agreement and Tenancy Policy.


Reason: To adopt a Tenancy Strategy that sets out how social housing in the borough will be let, to meet housing needs, provide tenants with long term security in their home and create sustainable communities.  The strategy had been updated following consultation and the decision to stop issuing flexible tenancies[1] to Council tenants. 


[This matter is recommended to Council for decision and is not subject to the call-in procedure.]

[1] Flexible tenancies are secure Local Authority tenancies for a fixed term
