NOTICE OF MOTION - ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF COUNCIL HOUSING

 

This Council notes:-

 

·                This year marks the centenary of The Housing Act of 1919, which made housing a national responsibility and enabled local authorities to build their own properties for the first time. These homes were given to families with a diverse variety of needs including veterans of the First World War.

 

·                The then County Borough of Rotherham was one of the first Local Authorities in the country to use the powers granted in the Housing Act, building over 700 homes between 1919-1923. These homes were built to progressive design standards set out in the Tudor Walters report of 1918 and championed by Raymond Unwin; the Chief Architect of the Local Government Board who was born in Rotherham.

 

·                The first major development completed by the then County Borough was East Dene, with the ground cut in 1919 and the first tenant of Rotherham occupying 1, First Avenue in April 1920.

 

·                Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council is embarking on the biggest Council housing delivery programme for more than a generation with 253 homes for Council rent or share ownership in the current programme (of which 36 are already built) and at least 160 planned for the next three years.

 

This Council resolves:-

 

·                To reaffirm our commitment to Council Housing and the benefits it still holds to thousands of people across Rotherham.

 

·                To deliver our current £57 million housing development programme whilst developing future plans to meet demand.

 

·                To increase the number of new homes in the Town Centre.

 

·                To examine the opportunities to provide further homes in the borough presented by the government’s decision to lift the borrowing cap on the Housing Revenue Account.

 

·                To increase the number of care and support ready housing options available for Council rent.

 

·                To work with local housing providers and seek partnerships in the private sector to help address key issues such as homelessness and specific care and support needs.
