Update on Housing Governance

Town Clerk to be heard.


The Town Clerk advised that, at the last meeting of the Court, two new non-resident Members had been appointed, which would considerably reduce the risk of future BRC Meetings being inquorate.    Members noted that the Policy and Resources Committee had delayed taking a decision on Housing Governance, pending the outcome of the Standards Committee’s decision on a report on Policy and Guidance on Dispensations under the Localism Act, 2011, which had subsequently been agreed on Friday 25th January 2019.  


Whilst noting the restriction on voting under the 1985, Housing Act, there was some discontent expressed in that the new Policy had not adequately reflected the directions from the Court of Common Council in December 2018.  The Chairman of the Barbican Association advised that the matter had been discussed at the Barbican Association General Council meeting the previous week and she would be writing to Aldersgate and Cripplegate Ward Members, setting out their concerns.
