Overview Committee 10.03.2010 72. REPORT FROM SCRUTINY COMMITTEES: (a) Standard of Private Rented Accommodation: Pursuant to Minute No. 50c of the Overview Committee Meeting held on 9 th December 2009, Councillor D. Smith, Vice-Chairman of Scrutiny A Committee, presented the final report which enabled Members to consider the standard of private rented accommodation. Concern was expressed at the reduction in staffing levels within the Housing Standards Team, which had attributed towards a lengthy waiting list for inspections. Members were referred to paragraph 2.2 of the report presented, which listed 29 hazards under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS). These hazards were then assessed as part of a two-stage process, firstly to address the likelihood of an occurrence and then the range of probable harm outcomes. One Member asked how the authority made people aware that they could complain to the Council about the state of their rented premises. The Business Manager, Housing and Community Development, advised Members that the Council worked closely with other agencies, such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, in this regard. In addition, information was displayed on the Council’s website and available in leaflet form. In response to a query raised, Members noted that the Council had a statutory duty to inspect premises. It was therefore agreed that the word “statutory” be inserted before “duty” in paragraph 1) of the Summary at page 41 of the report presented. It was acknowledged that the Housing Standards Team was underresourced, however, the Chief Executive reminded Members that they would ultimately have to decide where resources were put as the authority had a range of statutory duties to undertake and priorities would have to be identified. The Business Manager, Housing and Community Development, assured Members that the authority operated within the recommended guidelines and performed well during a recent benchmarking exercise. The Chairman requested further information relating to benchmarking undertaken with other Councils and an indication of how performance was measured. RESOLVED 1. That the recommendations contained in the report presented be forwarded to Executive Board on 30 th March 2010 for consideration. 2. That the Portfolio Holder for Housing be tasked with providing a formal response, including an Action Plan, to the Overview Committee. OC 65
