Herefordshire Council Tenancy Strategy 2021 - 2024

To approve the tenancy strategy as a guiding document for Registered Providers working across Herefordshire. The tenancy strategy is a statutory document. The Localism Act 2011, sets out provisions for housing tenure reform and places a duty on local authorities to prepare and publish a tenancy strategy, to keep it under review and to modify or replace it from time to time. Our existing tenancy strategy was approved in 2016 as part of the revised housing allocation policy. A new housing allocations scheme was agreed and implemented in 2020, but this did not include a tenancy strategy. A new tenancy policy that reflects current legislation and up to date housing needs data is now required.
