In passing…

The Housing and Regeneration bill has been amended so that homeless applicants with families who are subject to immigration control will have that family count towards priority need. This will apply for UK/EU/Commonwealth citizens.

Good. That will hopefully be one of the more vicious and ugly effects of the current statute, already found to be in breach of ECHR, done with.

    Yes, we have been sent the details of this by CLG. Although it will confer priority need etc, anyone who gets a full duty under Section 195/193 (a ‘restricted person’)could have their duty ceased by the offer of a 12 month shorthold tenancy in the private sector.
