Gas Safety Policy

A report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.

Minutes:

Members considered a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services which sought approval of a Gas Safety Policy for use by the Housing Service.  The Policy outlined how the City Corporation would meet its obligations as a Landlord under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 (as amended) and what action would be taken when tenants refuse or fail to allow access for annual gas safety checks.

 

During the discussion and questions, the following points were noted:

 

There would be a publicity drive early next year in respect of Leaseholders’ obligations when they become landlords and the Environmental Services Team would take enforcement action in the event of any violations. 

 

Any switch in service providers was entirely up to the resident and, whilst there were no obligations in respect of smart meters, Members noted that many suppliers were strongly urging customers to install them.  However, there had been issues with customer access to them in some blocks and their installation was not part of the new Policy. 

 

RESOLVED, THAT – The Gas Safety Policy for use by the Housing Service be approved.
