New core housing offer for council tenants 


The council’s proposal is to provide a better service that is easier to access, costs less, supports those who need it and invests in improvements and new homes. There is a six point plan to do this:


1 A well maintained, affordable and settled property.


2. Digital by   choice - an improved 24/7 digital offer for council tenants and leaseholders, but by choice, no one will be made to use the new IT system, you can still use phone, letter, or face to face


3. Supporting those who need it - targeted services for more vulnerable council tenants.


4. A clearer deal for council tenants and leaseholders - being upfront about what the council does and doesn’t do and what’s expected of tenants and leaseholders.


5. Reducing paperwork and bureaucracy - saving money on the council’s costs so more can be spent on the things that matter.


6. Investing in council housing - building more desperately needed new council housing and investing in improving current housing.
