Draft Damp, Mould and Condensation Policy (PDF Document, 267.84 Kb)

The purpose of this policy is to set out our approach to dealing with reports of damp, mould and condensation within a council property or building.

Consultation on our Draft Climate Change Strategy

We are committed to playing our part in responding to the growing evidence that urgent action is required to respond to climate change. This Strategy provides a longer term road map for tackling climate change both internally and in the wider borough. Linking to existing policy and plans it will set out the council’s vision, achievable goals and key action areas, and given finite resources help prioritise climate action in future delivery plans. It will provide a framework to enable the council to lead by example through its own decarbonisation actions, influence local reductions in emissions and shape the wider climate agenda through its policy, engagement and partnership work.

Statement of Community Involvement

We consulted on our Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which sets out how the local community, businesses and interest groups will be involved in the preparation of planning related documents and planning applications that may affect them.

All documents prepared and planning applications determined by the council have to comply with the consultation arrangements set out in this document.

This consultation closed on Wednesday 7 February.

Budget 2024/25

Every year the Council must set a balanced budget. We do this by assessing what changes we need to make to last year’s budget, based on our plans for the future and expected changes to our income or expenditure, and presenting a new budget for local Councillors to approve in 2024.

Before this, we are inviting residents, tenants, businesses and organisations to comment on our draft budgets. The results will be fed back to the elected Councillors who are responsible for setting the budget, for them to consider before the budget is approved.

This consultation opened on Tuesday 19 December and closed on Tuesday 16 January.
