Detail of outcome
The Department for Communities and Local Government consulted on proposed changes to guidance on evaluating the extent of rough sleeping from 23 July to 3 September 2010.
Analysis of all of the submissions received from the consultation exercise indicated a broad level of support for the changes to the guidance. Therefore, we intend to adopt most of the proposed changes in the revised guidance to be issued on 14 September 2010, subject to a small number of modifications in response to issues raised during the consultation.
This new guidance sets out the new approach to producing rough sleeping counts and estimates from autumn 2010.
This document describes a set of proposed changes to the existing rough sleeping guidance. It also gives users of the rough sleeping figures and those involved in evaluating the scale of rough sleeping in their local area an opportunity to comment on the proposals.
This is a public consultation and the Department for Communities and Local Government particularly welcomes responses from local authorities and the voluntary sector.
