Housing Enforcement Policy

Last Modified November 22, 2018

Housing Services Enforcement Policy

The housing enforcement policy was agreed by the council members on 21st March 2018.

The aim of this policy is to set out the criteria and priorities we will use when enforcing legislation so it is transparent and clear to the public.

To set out our policy in respect of charges that may be imposed for enforcement.

Ensure our enforcement is consistent, fair, proportionate and targeted.

Ensure it is consistent with the aims and objectives contained in other strategy documents including the Empty Homes Strategy, HMO Licensing Policy and Standards and Private Sector Housing Strategy.

When carrying out enforcement action it is important that the council works within the statutory framework set out and that it follows best practice and procedure.
