Council housing - standards and policies

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that where it is necessary to enforce standards that the Council achieves and maintains a consistent and balanced approach.

To achieve compliance with statutory requirements in private sector housing, the Council will, where possible, work informally with owners, landlords and managing agents. Where an informal approach is not effective in removing or reducing risks to the health and safety of occupants or other members of the public, the Council will consider the use of all relevant legislation to remove or reduce those risks.
