Chichester District Council — Let’s Talk: Housing Standards

Closed 4 Dec 2020

Opened 6 Nov 2020


Chichester District Council has drafted a new policy outlining ways in which they can help residents and landlords to maintain and improve the condition of housing in the Chichester District, and would like to hear your thoughts as part of a new public consultation.

A key objective in the council's housing strategy is to ensure that everyone in the district has access to suitable housing. As part of their work around this, they commissioned a Government funded study to assess and evaluate current housing conditions. The findings of the report have helped shape the new draft Financial Assistance and Enforcement Policy, which identifies ways in which the council can help maintain and improve housing standards by: helping to tackle excess cold and reduce fuel poverty; improving the standard of rented properties; assisting homeowners that can't afford repairs to their homes, and supporting those who are disabled through facilities grants.

You can view the policy and share your views, by clicking on the link provided below before midnight on 4 December, 2020.
