Please bring to the meeting your copy of the latest Performance and Financial Monitoring Information (Green Book).
The Executive considered the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information (Green Book) September 2020. Regarding empty properties brought back into use, the Portfolio Holder reported that resource had been allocated and work on empty homes had resumed. It was noted that questionnaires had been sent out in October and Officers were currently reviewing responses received. It was highlighted that 33 properties had so far been identified as non-empty.
It was explained that the increase in households in non-secure accommodation in September was due to clients moving into 121 Chertsey Road, as discussed earlier in the agenda. Officers advised that 121 Chertsey Road was classed as non-secure accommodation due to the Council leasing the building from Thameswey.
Regarding the increase in average days void, the Executive was informed that it had mainly been caused by Breyer Group’s poor performance. The Portfolio Holder reported that the issue had been discussed at the recent Housing Task Group, an action plan was in place and there had been significant improvement.
That the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information, September 2020, be received.
Reason: To manage the performance of the Council.
