Housing Assistance Policy

Principles of this policy

The principal aims of the Housing Assistance Policy are:

  • To assist and support owners and those who are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of their homes.
  • To have a commitment to improving housing quality in the borough across all tenures.
  • To target assistance to tackle issues where it is most needed.
  • To recognise that the housing stock of the Borough is a major public asset and this is the main reason assistance is offered, to protect this investment, rather than for short term gain to the owner.
  • To acknowledge that financial considerations are crucial to the effectiveness and scope of the Housing Assistance Policy.
  • Assistance is not just financial but also can be provided by advice.
  • Enforcement action may be taken.
