1. The Devon perspective
As a local housing authority operating in Devon we have agreed to work within the framework for local tenancy strategies in Devon (the framework), and to establish and implement a shared action plan. The framework has been approved by the Devon Strategic Housing Group Executive (DSHG), and highlights those areas of tenancy policy where broad policy principles are shared by most or all of the local housing authorities in Devon.
The aim of the framework is to enable local authorities within Devon to coordinate their policies and practices to produce lettings for customers that meet local housing needs and to improve the understanding of the housing market in Devon.
There will be a shared set of core indicators, selected via consultation, to give evidence about the overall housing market.
