Coronavirus (Covid-19): service updates, support and health advice.

The council website and most online services will be down for periods between 8am and 5pm on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October 2021. This is due to essential maintenance.

Tenancy fraud

Across the UK it is estimated that 50,000 housing association and council homes are occupied by someone who shouldn’t live there or who has obtained the tenancy fraudulently.

To help ensure that these properties are occupied by those who need them and not by those who don’t, we need your help.

If you know of a housing association home that has been sub-let by the tenant to someone else, or you suspect that someone has given false information in order to obtain a tenancy that they are not entitled, please let us know.

You can report the potential fraud using the freephone hotline – 0800 6940575.

All information received will be treated in confidence and acted on as appropriate.
