PEOPLE living in the Bicester area are being asked to give their views on how affordable housing should be provided.

Cherwell District Council launched a ‘strategic tenancy policy’ consultation on December 21, which will run for six weeks.

Members of the public are invited to give their views on the best use of housing stock across the district, and how the district should support vulnerable members of the community.

The strategic tenancy policy will cover flexible tenancies, affordable rents, the social housing register, and using the private sector to house homeless people.

The government has ordered all local authorities to come up with a policy by November this year.

But Cherwell District Council says it is preparing its strategic tenancy policy now because it is an important part of the framework for how affordable homes are provided.

Council officers will be available to answer questions at the eco demontration house in Garth Park on Tuesday, January 17, between 9am and 12.30pm.

Other events will be held at Kidlington’s Exeter Hall on Tuesday, January 17, and at Banbury Tourist Information Centre on Tuesday, January 24.
