Have your say on our Draft Tenancy Strategy
Published: 2 February 2021
Derby City Council is consulting on its new draft Tenancy Strategy for 2021 and residents are invited to have their say. If approved, this strategy will set out the Council’s position on the different types of tenancy agreement that can be offered to social housing tenants, as well as providing guidance for housing associations and other ‘registered providers’ to follow if they choose to.
Registered providers (RPs) operating in Derby include non-profit making and charitable housing associations registered with Homes England and the Regulator for Social Housing. The term also includes the Council as a landlord of social housing and its Arm's Length Management Organisation (ALMO), Derby Homes.
This new strategy is shaped by the council’s priorities set out in Derby’s Housing Strategy 2020-2029. These priorities are:
|Best use of stock||Working to ensure that Derby is getting the most out of the homes that already exist for individuals and families.|
|Housing quality and standards||Providing housing which is well-designed, well-managed, sustainable, safe and warm.|
|Vulnerable people||Providing suitable accommodation for vulnerable groups, and, where necessary, linking this to specialist support.|
|Housing development and regeneration||Supplying a range of new housing that meets needs and contributes to urban renewal in Derby.|
The Council is now welcoming thoughts and contributions from the public to help inform its next steps. You can take part by reading the Draft Tenancy Strategy 2021 and either completing the online survey or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 19 April.
