The Personnel Committee, at its meeting on 11 February 1997, agreed to standardise the position regarding the re-housing of employees once they are required to vacate their tied accommodation, taking account of the Tied Tenancy Policy.
This page therefore describes the implications of this change and the extract of the previous policy that existed as at 22 March 1995.
This information will help you if:
- You are a tied tenancy employee who was in post with either Grampian Regional Council or Aberdeen District Council on 22 March 1995.
- You are a new employee in tied accommodation subject to the new Tied Tenancy policy.
Further information on the current policy is available from the Housing Service, Aberdeen City Council.
