East Herts Housing and Health Strategy 2016-2021

The East Herts Housing and Health Strategy 2016 - 2021 shows how we plan to make the most of the opportunities in East Herts for the next five years. In the longer term, we want to close the gap between housing need and supply and will use this plan period to work out how we can do this. The Housing Strategy covers all types of housing in the district both private and affordable.

The Homeless & Homeless Prevention Strategy 2013 - 2018

The Homeless and Homeless Prevention Strategy 2008-2013 takes a broad view of the full range of housing issues in East Herts, including homelessness and the partnerships the Council has with other agencies in the district to alleviate homelessness.

Tenancy Strategy

The Localism Act 2011 introduced a number of changes in social housing including placing a new duty on every local authority to publish a tenancy strategy. The strategy is to guide Registered Providers of social housing in the relevant area in formulating policies relating to:

(a) the kinds of tenancies they grant,

(b) the circumstances in which they will grant a tenancy of a particular kind,

(c) where they grant tenancies for a term, the lengths of the terms, and

(d) the circumstances in which they will grant a further tenancy on the coming to an end of an existing tenancy.

Registered Providers are obliged to have regard to the strategy when developing their own tenancy policies.
