That the Cabinet Member for Housing:
Agreed the proposed approach to social lettings set out in table 4 and Appendix B and that it was noted that this approach could change due to the impact of the pandemic, if a further emergency approach was needed for example.
Noted the temporary approach to employment points, as set out in 4.11–4.15 sections of the report.
Agreed the Action Plan for procuring private rented properties for homeless households for 2020/21 in Appendix D. This would form part of the Accommodation Procurement Policy for Homeless Households.
Reasons for Decision
The City Council’s Housing Allocations Scheme was read alongside the annual Supply and Allocation of Social Housing Report, which set out the proportion of social housing the council expected to let to the different groups in need. These lettings projections were needed to guide the approach to lettings during the year.
The Supply and Allocation of Social Housing Report was also needed to consider wider policy and lettings issues relating to social housing and in particular to consider the impacts of the council’s homelessness policies agreed in 2017.
