Due to signifcant pressures in the private sector housing market we have been unable to source enough accommodation as an alternative to homelessness, or for use as temporary accommodation. As a result we are now using hotel accommodation to meet our statutory responsibilities to households experiencing homelessness. This report details the resulting financial pressures and the arrangments we have needed to enter into to meet this need.
