The Council's Housing Services teams work to assist those in housing need.
The Council is responsible for:
- Planning the types of homes needed to meet the housing needs of all Erewash residents; we do this by working with the Council's planners, housing associations, private developers and providers of funding, such as Homes England.
- Making sure that people live in homes that are safe, healthy, of a good standard and suitable for them; we do this by enforcing legal minimum standards in private homes, and helping to adapt homes for people with disabilities by using the Disabled Facilities Grant.
- Preventing homelessness, and providing temporary homes to qualifying households if they do become homeless; we do this by working with tenants, landlords and other organisations to help people stay in their home or find alternative housing.
