Homelessness post Localism Act – Statutory Guidance

The DCLG has released statutory guidance on:

the changes that the Localism Act 2011 makes to the homelessness legislation.

It also provides guidance on the Homelessness (Suitability of Accommodation) (England) Order 2012.

This supplements parts of the Homelessness Code of Guidance for Local Authorities published in July 2006.

The guidance can be found here. [Link updated to new gov.uk site]
