About private housing

The role of the Private Sector Housing Team

The Private Sector Housing Team consists of a strong multi-discipline team of staff. Each has specialist skills, knowledge and duties in a field that complements the overall function of the team.

We are responsible for home improvement financial assistance, bringing privately-owned empty homes back into use, providing guidance and taking appropriate enforcement action in privately owned and rented accommodation including houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), and offering advice and incentives for energy conservation.

The team takes pride in its effort to ensure that homes in the borough are energy efficient and in a safe and decent condition.

Information regarding financial assistance and other services offered are available on our website. Copies of our policies are available on request by either completing our contact form or calling us on 01455 238141.
