The Erewash Tenancy Strategy - Guidance for Registered Providers of Social Housing (Housing Associations)
Registered Providers are otherwise known as Housing Associations, Registered Social Landlords or Registered Providers of Social Housing. They build, buy and manage homes, much in the way that Councils used to do with "Council Housing". In Erewash, the Council transferred all its council housing to a Registered Provider, Three Valleys Housing npw EMH , in 2002. There are 14 Registered providers in Erewash, managing 6,700 homes.
Although it no longer owns any properties, the Council is still expected to have an overview of housing in the borough and to enable, guide and plan for the housing which is needed by our residents.
Significant changes are now taking part in the housing world.
New laws introduced by the government, make very important changes to the way Registered Providers (Housing Associations) look after their housing and build new housing.
The Erewash Tenancy Strategy is guidance about how the Council expect Registered Providers in their area to manage their homes and operate the tenancies of the people renting from them, in the years ahead. It was approved by the Council Executive in November 2012.
