​Housing Consultation - Have Your Say

The consultation on the Council's new Housing Policies has now closed.

We asked members of the public and housing professionals to let us know what they thought of proposed changes made to key housing policies including those made to the Housing Allocation Scheme, the new Homeless Placements Policy and revisions made to the Tenancy Policy.

The consultation ended on 4 April 2016.

We are taking your feedback into consideration for the full draft of each policy. The results of the consultation are currently being analysed. Once finalised, the details will be published on our website. The final policies will be submitted to the Council's Cabinet in June 2016 for approval and formal adoption.

Thank you to everyone who took part.
