This policy covers the tenancies offered by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and sets out the Council's approach to the provision of tenancies and mutual exchanges within its own housing stock.
The Council owns and manages 5,787 council dwellings as well as providing services to 367 leaseholders (as at 31 March 2021). The Council is the largest registered provider of social housing within the Borough of Great Yarmouth, with the next largest provider managing around 400 properties.
We aim to manage our properties to the benefit of all tenants and to ensure that tenancies are sustainable.
We believe that sustainable tenancies are created by allocating the right property to the right tenants and by ensuring the appropriate management of tenancies. We will work with our Housing Options Team to ensure that all new tenants are allocated properties that maximise the opportunity to create a sustainable tenancy.
