York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Chief Housing Officers Group and Technical Groups

The York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Chief Housing Officers Group provides technical support and advice to the Board. The group comprises of housing officers from the local housing authorities, plus representatives from North Yorkshire County Council, National Parks, Homes England and housing associations. The Chair is Colin Dales of Richmondshire DC, supported by Vice Chair, Kim Robertshaw of Ryedale DC.

The Chief Housing Officers Group is responsible for identifying new initiatives, championing good practice, ensuring that accurate performance and monitoring information is reported to the Board, responding to new challenges and delivery issues as they arise. They also play a key role in liaising with other organisations, both within their own local authorities and through other sub-regional groups.

The Chief Housing Officers Group is further supported by specialist technical groups - Homelessness Group, Private Sector Housing Group, North Yorkshire Rural Housing Enabler Network and Gypsy, Roma, Traveller & Showpeople Group, who each have responsibility for related priorities in the Housing Strategy. There is a Chief Housing Officer representative on each of these groups. More information regarding these groups available on their individual pages.

The York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Housing Forum

The York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Housing Forum comprises local authority Members and officers from  housing and support providers within the sub-region. It acts as a sounding board for the Board to consult on key policy and initiatives as well as a vehicle for promoting and sharing good practice and innovation through themed discussions, led by internal and external partners. Its views are fed back to the Board.

Should you wish to attend our quarterly Forum meetings or join our mailing list please contact sarah.hall@hambleton.gov.uk. We are also keen to hear from partnering organisations who would like to use our Forum as an arena for promoting and sharing ideas with other stakeholders.
