(a)  the removal of the ‘Update on Homelessness’ from the agenda of the November meeting;

(d)  the existing Council Housing and Maintenance report and the Tenancy Management report be amalgamated into a single report and added to the agenda of the meeting scheduled to take place on 07 March 2019;

 

(e)  the addition of a Housing Association presentation to the agenda of the meeting to be held in March; and

 

(f)   the addition of a report to the agenda of the meeting to be held in March that will summarise the changes being consulted on by Hampshire County Council in respect of Social Inclusion services.  This report will put forward a recommended response to the consultation and will encompass the issues of homelessness and rough sleeping.
