Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Committee considered the Decant Policy.
The Council makes all reasonable attempts to allow tenants to remain in their homes while repairs or routine maintenance takes place in properties. On rare occasions, it is not possible and it is necessary to move tenants out of their properties, usually temporarily, while necessary repairs or maintenance takes place.
The Council aims to avoid tenants from incurring unnecessary household costs as a result of decants and the policy details the assistance that the Council was able to provide in accordance with its statutory responsibilities.
RESOLVED that the amended Decant Policy be approved.
