Notices of Motion

i)             Councillor Smith to propose, and Councillor T Eales to second:

 

“The cost of temporary accommodation is putting huge pressure on our budget every year. It is time to call a halt to this.

 

We call on the council to house eligible families in permanent housing straight away. This would be kinder, cheaper, and more effective.

 

 We call on the council to use the Homes First model to take people off the street and make them safe.

 

We call on the council to fulfil its 2015 manifesto promise and ensure we have a fully functioning Social Lettings agency by the time we go to Unitary. A social Lettings agency will help us with the supply side by working with private landlords, investing in empty properties, bringing back into use properties that are hard to let.“
