Minutes:

Consideration was given to the report of the Portfolio Holder for Housing and Health and the Executive Director Commercialisation (S151) which asked members to consider the Lincolnshire Homelessness Strategy for adoption.

 

The Cabinet was advised that P3, a charity set up to support rough sleepers, provided a 24 hour telephone number which was available to report homelessness issues.  Members requested that officers speak with the Press to publicise these details.

 

Section 1.8 of the report set out the new approach to delivery of the strategy.  A Homelessness Prevention Programme Manager had been appointed to oversee the delivery of the Strategy.  It was agreed that the Portfolio Holder Housing and Health provide an update in six months time on how this was working. 

 

DECISION:

 

a)    That South Holland District Council adopt the Lincolnshire Homelessness Strategy 2017-21; and

 

b)    That in order to ensure that that the Strategy and the associated delivery plan remain relevant, a full review of the data under-pinning the Strategy is commenced within six months of adoption of the Strategy.

 

(Other options considered:

·         Not to adopt the Lincolnshire Homelessness Strategy 2017-21.

Reasons for decision:

·         To meet the Council’s statutory duties under the Homelessness Reduction Act 2002.)
