Tenancy strategy

Tenancy strategy

The 2011 Localism Act introduced a programme of reform which makes changes to the way people access social housing, the types of tenancies that are provided and the way the homelessness duty is discharged.

All local authorities had a duty under the Act to produce a Strategic Tenancy Policy setting out the framework for the future delivery of new affordable homes, as well as the broad objectives to be taken into consideration by housing providers when developing their own individual tenancy policies.

This policy has been developed through wide consultation with stakeholders, tenants, officers and members to ensure that social housing across Wiltshire is used as effectively as possible and that it provides homes for Wiltshire's residents in housing need, who are unable to secure a home in the private sector.

Wiltshire's Strategic tenancy policy was approved by Cabinet on 30 January 2013
