Motion: Housing Needs in East Devon - Housing Company TAFF

1. That Cabinet establishes a politically balanced Housing Company TAFF comprising the relevant portfolio holders, members of the Strategic Planning Committee and also the Housing Review Board to re-evaluate the business model of East Devon Homes Ltd with a view to ensuring it is better fit for purpose and also integrates effectively with the work of the Housing Review Board.

2. That the TAFF will be expected to fully scope options into altering the delivery models of the housing company as they have been ineffective so far. Recommendations will be reported back to Cabinet, Strategic Planning Committee and the Housing Review Board and then to Council.


Proposed by Councillor Dan Ledger

Seconded by Councillor Mike Howe

Supported by Councillors John Loudoun, Paul Arnott, Val Ranger, Paul Millar, Jack Rowland, Eileen Wragg, Denise Bickley, Mike Allen, Cathy Gardner, Marianne Rixson, Sarah Jackson and Jo Whibley.
