Defend council homes policy sub-group

The Defend Council Homes policy sub-group (DCHP SG) works collaboratively with the council to make sure that the Defend Council Homes policy is fully implemented.

The aims of the group are to:

  • monitor, on an ongoing basis, the council’s implementation of and compliance with the Defend Council Homes (DCH) policy
  • collaborate with council officers and residents to assist in the implementation and monitoring of the DCH policy
  • make recommendations to the housing representatives forum (HRF) and to the council on how to embed knowledge of the DCH policy amongst officers and residents in the long term
  • report back to HRF twice yearly.
