Housing Changes - Latest strategy developments
A new set of strategies were adopted by the Council following the 11th April 2013 Cabinet meeting. These set out our future approach to housing and how we will take advantage of the freedoms and flexibilities given to local housing authorities under the Localism Act 2011.
Developing these strategies and plans involved extensive consultation during 2012 with Harrow's residents, tenants, leaseholders, and community groups. We also worked with many partner organisations to make sure that our future plans are the right ones for Harrow.
Housing Strategy - guides our overall strategic approach to housing in the borough and also sets the parameters for the other housing strategies.
Homelessness Strategy - preventing homelessness is a key priority for the council and this strategy sets out the council's approach to helping households in need.
Allocations Scheme - social housing supply is limited, and this sets out how we intend to allocate available accommodation.
Private Sector Housing Strategy - twice as many homes are in the private rented sector than social housing sector. This strategy sets out how the council intends to support and encourage a strong and sustainable private housing sector.
Tenancy Strategy & Tenancy Policy - The Tenancy Strategy sets out the council's approach in introducing flexible fixed term tenancies and the introduction of Affordable Rent. The Tenancy Policy sets out how the Council will use flexible fixed term tenancies of 5 years for its own housing stock, following the principles set in the Tenancy Strategy.
