Section 50 - Duty to carry out a homelessness review and formulate a homelessness strategy
110.A local housing authority must, periodically, undertake homelessness reviews in its area. Based on the results of a review, it must formulate and adopt a homelessness strategy. The first strategy must be adopted in 2018. It must develop and adopt a strategy in every fourth year after 2018. The Welsh Ministers have the power to vary this timetable. An authority must take account of the strategy in exercising all its functions, not just those as a local housing authority. In carrying its duties under this section a local housing authority must have regard to the guidance issued by the Welsh Ministers under section 98.
