The Head of Housing and Property submitted a report which detailed proposals to award a contract to deliver the Council’s Furnished Tenancy Scheme.


Cllr Rowley, Executive Board Member for Housing presented the report. The Board commended the scheme as a valuable tool to support vulnerable residents and help them avoid debt by offering the equivalent of a zero-interest loan.  The Board noted that the government’s proposed changes to social rent levels would not impact this scheme.


The City Executive Board resolved to:

1.     Delegate authority to the Executive Director Regeneration & Housing, in consultation with the Monitoring Officer and s151 Officer, to award the Furnished Tenancy Scheme contract to the supplier selected following completion of the EU-compliant open tender process described in this report, for the provision of household goods and furnishings to Council tenants.
