Implementation of HRA action plans
35.Section 8 requires that the local authority take reasonable steps to implement the action plan and as part of this inform owners and occupiers affected by the action plan about how it will do this. The local authority also must inform owners and occupiers on progress in implementing the action plan.
36.Section 9 applies where a person is permanently displaced from his or her living accommodation as a result of the implementation of the HRA action plan. Where a person was residing in the affected living accommodation on the day that the draft designation order was notified to the occupier, then the local authority must secure that the person is provided with suitable alternative accommodation, where they are asked to do so by that person. If possible, the local authority should meet requests for accommodation within a reasonable distance of the affected living accommodation.
