Flexible Tenancy consultation

Outcome and update on the Council's decision and how it may affect you

Following a consultation with our tenants and a decision by the Council’s Cabinet, we will no longer issue five-year Flexible Tenancies. From 1 April 2020, all new Council tenants will be offered a secure tenancy.

If you already have a Dacorum Borough Council flexible tenancy, we will write to you to give more information about how this affects you. The most important change is that you would not be asked to move at the end of your current five-year flexible tenancy if this is after 1 April 2020.
