Draft Temporary Accommodation Placement Policy

Summary

Levels of homelessness and the use of temporary accommodation have risen since the introduction of the Homelessness Reduction Act in April 2018, and this increased demand for affordable accommodation is not being met in terms of housing supply in Milton Keynes.

Due to the lack of supply of affordable suitable accommodation in Milton Keynes, it may be necessary for households to be offered temporary accommodation outside of Milton Keynes.

The draft Temporary Accommodation Placement Policy sets out the Council’s proposed approach to the placement of households in temporary accommodation both in and outside of Milton Keynes.

Purpose

To consult with service users and key stakeholders on the development of a Temporary Accommodation Placement Policy.
