Council Homes Delivery - Purchase of Affordable Housing units at Gilesgate - Report of Corporate Director of Regeneration, Economy and Growth


The Cabinet considered a report of the Corporate Director of Regeneration, Economy and Growth which sought authorisation from Cabinet for the purchase of six bungalows for rent at Gilesgate, Durham from Chapter Homes for the purpose of providing council homes.  This purchase will complement the construction of new council housing as previously agreed by Cabinet (for copy see file of minutes).

Councillor Shaw spoke of his support for the Council to work with Chapter Homes on this provision of high-quality council homes, and, seconding the report, Councillor Marshall commented that this is an important step in addressing unmet housing demand and he added he was looking forward to similar proposals in the future.




That the recommendations in the report be approved.
