Notice of Motion
To receive any Notices of Motion from Members of Council in accordance with the Council Procedure Rule 3.
It was proposed by Councillor Whitehead and seconded by Councillor Everitt that:
“As we are all aware there is a spiralling housing crisis in Thanet, and levels of private sector evictions are increasing, especially within low income households.
In light of this rise in evictions, and the impossibility of finding and maintaining a private rental property on the current LHA allowance, our need for temporary housing to keep families in area is continually growing. As a Council we acknowledge and recognise the need for purchase and creation of further temporary housing units now, before further inflation makes the necessary growth of our in house provision impossible, and urge Cabinet to bring forward such plans.”
In accordance with council procedure rule 3.7, Councillor Jill Bayford provided a response to the motion.
Members voted not to debate the motion; therefore the motion was forwarded to Cabinet without debate as it related to a Cabinet function.
