Tenancy strategies

Under the Localism Act 2011 a council can set a tenancy strategy, which aims to make sure new rents and flexibilities set out in the Act were used properly.

Tenancy policies

Under the Localism Act 2011 housing providers can set a tenancy policy, which aims to make clear how they plan to use the new rents and flexibilities set out in the Act. Tenancy policies are available on housing providers’ websites and may be updated every now and then. Here are some local examples:

We would like to include links to every provider’s tenancy policy in our area. If you’d like to share your tenancy policy here, please contact us.

Older people’s housing, care and support needs in Greater Cambridge 2017-2036

In partnership with the University of Sheffield, the Centre for Regional Economic & Social Research at Sheffield-Hallam university assessed the future housing, care and support needs of residents in Greater Cambridge. This work was commissioned by South Cambridgeshire District Council, in collaboration with Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council, with funding from NHS England’s Healthy New Towns programme.

The recommendations are intended to stimulate discussion at a local level about how best to meet the requirements of an ageing population. The research shows that the future needs of older people can be met in different ways, and that local authorities and their partners should try to understand the relationship between different services and forms of accommodation to define local priorities and strategies for action.

The final report from the research Older people’s housing, care and support needs in Greater Cambridge 2017-2036 is available to download here.

The Housing for Older People Supply Recommendations tool is available using this link HOPSR-tool. Upon opening the file, please ‘enable macros’ and select one of the four options in the boxes.
