Either he's an assured tenant of another social landlord, or a secure tenant of a council: probably the former. Either way, yes the tenancy can be varied by notice; though he has to be consulted first. It would be best to assume that, if they are going to the trouble of varying the tenancy, they also intend to enforce it.
Specialised advice is probably called for but this is an area where legal aid is hard to come by, I'm afraid. Is there any possibility of reaching a compromise? It would be better for both sides not to get themselves into a position where they have a point to prove.

With regards to the diving air bottles that may be difficult for them to exclude. Presumably they would have to roll out such a requirement across all their properties and given that some people require compressed air bottles for medical / disability reasons such a requirement could be seen as discriminatory.
