Tackling housing fraud - key amnesty

We are running a key amnesty for tenancy cheats from 2-31 January 2018.  We want our limited council homes to be lived in by honest people in need of affordable housing.  Tenants who illegally sublet their properties are breaking the law and can face unlimited fines or imprisonment of up to two years. 

Housing Annual Report 2017 and Housing Matters December 2017

The Housing Annual Report 2017 is now available and will be sent out to all tenants with the December 2017 Housing Matters magazine.

Improving fire safety in our communal blocks

Fire safety is one of our top priorities and we are working hard to make sure that all tenants are aware of their responsibilities and that our communal areas are free from potential fire hazards.
