Councillors Approve £10m Homeless Family Housing Scheme

The one and two-bedroom flats will mean families in need can be homed locally and will not need to be put in temporary B&B accommodation. The rent would be £834 a month, compared with the average of £1,091 in Oxford for a two-bedroom property. Only those who have a strong connection to Oxford will be eligible to be rehomed in the scheme. The council's City Executive Board approved the property fund at a meeting on Thursday evening. It will be up for full council approval in September. Read more on the BBC website.
