To support the application for the purchase of Hometrack, housing intelligence system.


To approve the purchase of Hometrack.

Reasons for the decision:

The purchase of Hometrack is proposed as the best option for the delivery of up-to-date and robust information to support the activities of the Housing team.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1

Do nothing and continue using the current system which is more expensive and time consuming.


Option 2

Purchase the Hometrack system which will improve the ability of the Council to ensure that appropriate viability assessments of sites are undertaken. This can only be supported with up to date robust data.  The delivery of new housing (private and affordable) will be a valuable commodity in future years with the New Homes Bonus.
