Help shape a tenancy strategy for Exeter
Published: 11 October 2021
Council house tenants and other interested parties in Exeter are being asked to help shape a tenancy strategy for the city.
People are being encouraged to complete a short online survey. Paper forms of the survey are also available for those who can’t get online. The survey will be available until Friday 3 December.
Five lucky participants drawn at random will each receive a £20 shopping voucher.
The strategy sets out the Council’s expectations for how all social tenancies in Exeter could be managed. It sets out how the Council will specifically carry out a range of options available to manage its housing stock.
The Localism Act 2011 requires all local authorities to adopt a tenancy strategy in order to guide registered providers, who provide social housing in Exeter, to develop their own tenancy policies for houses.
Registered providers like Housing Associations are expected to consider the local authority’s tenancy strategy when determining their own policies.
Cllr Laura Wright, Lead Councillor for Council Housing Development and Services, said: “We’re really keen to hear people’s views on the type of tenancies the Council could be offering.
“The survey only takes five or ten minutes to complete and will help us develop a framework for the future,” she added.
The survey is open to council house tenants but also the wider public and anyone who would like to take part.
