The Strategic Tenancy Policy was prepared in April 2012 and after consultation was formally approved by the Council in November 2012.


A full public consultation was undertaken in mid 2012 over a twelve week period and the responses to the draft Strategic Tenancy Policy were considered by the Council’s Informal Housing Task Group on 12 November 2012 before a final report was discussed at the Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 29 November 2012. The policy was finalised and approved at this meeting.
