Decision:

Having considered an officer report, and a presentation by the Cabinet

models for a new model as set out be noted;

assist tenants with the financial transition;

 

(3) if finally approved, these proposals would all see a management and

with all tenants currently residing in sheltered housing and their

representatives, regarding those three options;
