Background Information: The Housing Ombudsman has produced a spot light report on damp and mould cases and has made a series of recommendations and asked a number of questions of social housing providers. We have completed a self assessment against these and are bringing the outcomes of this assessment and a resultant action plan for committee members information and endorsement. A Damp and Mould Policy has been drafted for the Council Housing Stock, this was a key recommendation made and the organisation does not currently have a specific policy.
