New weekly TA reports

We have deployed an update to the Temporary Accommodation dashboard within HPA2 that gives councils the ability to see information that is required by the MHCLG.

This update covers these two items:

  • How many total households in your local authority are single person households in Temporary Accommodation under Housing Act 1996 duties?
  • How many total households in your local authority are families in Temporary Accommodation under Housing Act 1996 duties?

We have done this because Local Authorities are required to provide these items each week on the Delta system.

However, there are several more reporting requirements that are also required by MHCLG and Delta system. We will be adding them over the coming weeks. These will include:

The number of people in your Local Authority who are currently in emergency accommodation in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. (This includes people who were sleeping rough or were in shared sleeping sites).

History prior to Emergency Accommodation
