The SIG confirmed the appointment of Mr V K Scrivens as its Chairman for the Council year 2004-05.

A. HOUSING OPTIONS APPRAISAL SIG REPORT

The SIG noted the report from the meeting held on 25th May 2004.

B. TENANT SURVEY

Following the discussions on the tenant survey at the last meeting of the SIG, members received a revised and final version of the questionnaire, as amended by PPCR. This questionnaire was now in the process of being printed in preparation for dispatch to tenants.

C. UPDATES

An update was received from the representative of Dome and officers reported on the attendance by tenants at the drop-in sessions which had been undertaken so far.

D. TIMETABLE OF EVENTS

D.1 The SIG discussed the sequence of events which would be required once the results of the consultation had been produced by PPCR. The SIG agreed that a one-day workshop would be needed to bring together all information gathered during the options appraisal process and that this would take place on Tuesday 14th September 2004. Should it be necessary for an additional meeting of the SIG, this would take place on Friday 17th September.

D.2 The SIG noted that September was a significant time in the process and therefore the intention would be to hold special meetings of the Community Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Executive on 21st September. It was noted that a meeting of the Council may also need to follow the Executive on this evening, and that members would be advised accordingly in due course.
