NEW rules for housing across County Durham will be discussed by Durham chiefs.

If given the go-ahead, a tenancy strategy will come into force to set out the framework within which providers should be granting tenancies.

Within this sits a second document, the tenancy policy, which details rules and regulations for the council’s own housing, explaining how Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes and East Durham Homes grant tenancies on the council’s behalf.

This will be discussed at a meeting on Wednesday.
