12 Performance and Financial Monitoring Information PDF 2 MB
To consider the current publication of the Performance & Financial Monitoring Information.
Reporting Person – Councillor Ayesha Azad
The Committee was invited to raise any points in respect of the recently published Performance and Financial Monitoring Information.
Louise Strongitharm, Strategic Director of Communities, was asked how identification and repurposing of empty homes was progressing. It was remarked that there had so far been no new empty homes brought back into use in the current Municipal Year. Louise noted that many cases took considerable time, often having to be handled sensitively. Additionally, the data for empty homes came in tranches from Council Tax at several points throughout the year and therefore work on newly found empty homes could only happen after these data transfers. It was for these reasons that no empty homes had been brought back into use for the year to date.
An Empty Homes Plan was due to be presented at the Executive on 17 November 2022.
That the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information (July 2022) be noted.
