Cost of living support
Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
It seeks views on implementing the government’s decision to remove Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 and improving section 8 eviction grounds. It also invites views on the implications of removing the ability of landlords to grant assured shorthold tenancies in the future, how the processing of repossession orders through the courts could be improved, and whether the reforms should be extended to other types of landlords, most notably, to housing associations.
This consultation from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government runs from 21 July to 12 October 2019.
