Private Sector Housing

Around 90% of housing in the district is in the private sector, and is either owner occupied or rented from Registered Social Landlords (Housing Associations) or private landlords.

Our primary aim is to try to ensure that private sector residents are living in accommodation that is well maintained, safe and warm.

In addition, we take action to bring empty homes back into use, administer Disabled Facilities Grants and licence certain Houses in Multiple Occupation.

Please find attached advice for Landlords and Tenants during the Coronavirus
