Blow for homeless
The number of homeless people in Bath finding new homes has fallen.
A report reveals that the number of homeless people in Bath and North East Somerset Council housed through the housing service Homesearch has fallen, from 71 households in 2010 to 46 in 2012.
Figures show a low number of homes being found from October through to last month.
A report on the issue is due to be delivered to councillors on Bath and North east Somerset Council's Wellbeing Policy Development and Scrutiny Panel tomorrow.

The council has a duty to provide temporary accommodation for people who are homeless, have a local connection, are in priority need for accommodation and who did not become homeless intentionally.
The council's housing services section is reviewing how the housing options and homeless team operates.
As part of the review, B&NES is looking to ensure work to help homeless people make progress is incorporated into any future service design.
This involves working with households in temporary accommodation to encourage a move on to permanent accommodation.
