Thousands of families and elderly residents need new homes in the County.
The Labour-led Council has announced ambitious plans for social housing, a £70 million programme will see 10,000 new affordable homes either for rent by through private or social housing landlords or to purchase. A projects for new social housing including bungalows in Brandon has just been approved.
The Council works with builders to ensure developments, wherever possible, take into consideration the views of other residents, traffic and environmental issues.
By introducing selective licensing of Landlords we can ensure that private rented properties offer tenants a choice of safe, high quality, well managed accommodation. It also helps us tackle instances of anti-social behaviour which can plague communities.
