To enter into a lease of 50 new houses to be used by PCC for temporary accommodation for the homeless – KEY/23DEC19/01

PCC have been investigating ways in which the numbers of leasehold properties used to accommodate the homeless could be increased due the significant costs of B & B which costs the Council £386 per room per week. There is a programme of finding property to lease on the basis of 5 year leases at local housing allowance rates which is ongoing, however the supply is relatively limited. An opportunity has arisen to ‘bulk lease’ fifty properties for a period of 20 years (subject to a break option after ten years) which would substantially increase the supply of accommodation in a relatively short timeframe.
