    10 Motion – Council housing stock

    Councillor Haynes to propose and Councillor Boswell to second:

    With the rising need for affordable, good-quality housing, council housing is highly important. New rules (government implementation in autumn 2013 of provisions within section 34a of the Housing Act 1985) have been introduced, encouraging council housing to be transferred to housing associations, meaning democratic control of housing stock is lost.

    Council RESOLVES to ask cabinet to include within its corporate plan proposal a commitment to keeping our housing stock council owned and run and not to initiate a transfer process to a housing association.
