Council's housing service consults

Home » Latest News » Council housing service consults

Cheshire East Council is looking to continue to ensure all its residents get access to decent homes as part of a double consultation.

The Council's draft tenancy strategy and the revised allocations policy — two key elements of the Council's housing service — are under review.

Up until June 22, residents can give their thoughts on the two documents, which have been published at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk

Once finalised, the tenancy strategy will give guidance on how Cheshire East Council would like to see the following being addressed by registered providers:


  • What kind of tenancy they offer;

  • The circumstances in which they will grant a tenancy of a particular kind;

  • The length of tenancy that will be offered (when for a set term);

  • The circumstances in which a further tenancy will be granted when the existing tenancy has ended.


Meanwhile, the proposed allocations policy has been set out in response to changes in Government policy. This can also be viewed on the consultations section of the Cheshire East website.

The overall aim of the policy is to ensure that all social and affordable housing is allocated fairly and objectively to those in the greatest housing need.

Alternatively, a summary of the document, as well as a survey about the policy, can be viewed at www.cheshirehomechoice.org.uk
