To grant £100,000 from existing Temporary Accommodation budget to Gloucester City Homes for temporary accommodation for families in Southgate Street.
Gloucester City Council have been working with GCH since autumn 2019 on a temporary accommodation housing scheme in Southgate Street. The scheme consists of up to 9 units of accommodation suitable for families and with flexibility to house larger families. Gloucester have approximately 5 families currently in B&B accommodation which could be moved in to this more appropriate provision when it is available.
GCH have secured Homes England funding to support the scheme. GCC will grant £133,000 of which £33,000 will come from S106 and £100,000 from current TA budgets and in return will have nomination rights through a nominations agreement for a period 12 years.
We could decide not to contribute to the scheme but we would not benefit from the nominations agreement if we didn’t and our temporary accommodation options for families would remain limited.
