Housing Select Committee

Information about Housing Select Committee

The Housing Select Committee monitors, reviews and makes recommendations about a wide range of local housing matters, including homelessness, housing conditions and affordable housing. 


It gives local councillors the opportunity to question council officers and cabinet members and to influence the decisions made by the Mayor and Cabinet in relation to housing. It also enables councillors to hear from local residents, housing providers, and other interested groups. 


The Committee chooses the housing-related issues it wants to focus on each year and holds eight public meetings. The agenda and papers for each are published online in advance.
