Furnished Tenancy Scheme
The Council operates a Furnished Tenancy Scheme (FTS) whereby new tenants who have not previously held a social housing tenancy are offered the opportunity to hold a furnished tenancy.
The purpose of the scheme is to provide new tenants with the best possible opportunity to succeed in their tenancy by removing many of the immediate financial demands that providing furniture for a first home can bring, thus reducing the risk of high levels of indebtedness.
