The Executive considered the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information (Green Book), September 2018 and October 2018. Regarding the number of empty homes brought back into use, the Executive was informed that activity in the area had started again following a previous concentration by Officers on the new licensing scheme. It was highlighted that empty homes brought back into use would not necessarily be affordable.

Members also discussed fly tipping, Robin Hood and Rutland, and affordable housing.
