Private sector housing
The condition of your home can have a major influence on the health of you and your family, so private sector housing is an important part of the work of the Environmental Health team.
Our work covers:
- investigation of complaints about housing conditions and safety in private rented accommodation
- provision of grants to help adapt dwellings for people with disabilities
- bringing empty domestic dwellings back into use
Our aim is to ensure that dwellings meet the minimum statutory standard and provide a safe home for the occupier.
