Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 - 2025
Decision Maker: Leader of the Council
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
To provide an opportunity for Members to consider and comment on the Draft Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 – 2025.
That the homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 – 2025 be approved.
Reasons for the decision:
· The proposal aligns closely with Breckland Council’s strategic vision and priorities for the five years 2019 – 2023 as agreed in the Corporate Plan.
· The rationale behind the strategy is to provide a vehicle to improve the homelessness and housing service with a view to reducing homelessness, especially rough sleeping in the district and put in place an action plan to shape service improvement for the next twelve months.
· It is also a Government requirement to have a new Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy in place.
Alternative options considered:
The requirement by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to produce a new strategy limits the option to ensuring a new Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy is in place as soon as possible.
