Breckland Council Cabinet members have voted to formalise a working arrangement with Kings Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council that delivers savings, improved business resilience and a number of other efficiencies.

In agreeing to formalise the shared services agreement - also known as a S113 agreement - Breckland Councillors are ensuring the two local authorities work together to deliver the Housing Strategy and Enabling Service until March 2020, subject to final decision at 18 January Council.

This is responsible for enabling the delivery of affordable and specialist new housing, undertaking research, and developing strategy and policy, for the next two years, following the completion of a successful two-year trial period.

The announcement comes after Breckland partnered with North Norfolk District Council and Kings Lynn & West Norfolk Borough to appoint a shared Community Housing Delivery Officer, funded by a government grant, in late 2017.
