West Lindsey Housing Strategy 2018 - 2022

We want people in West Lindsey to be able to choose a home and community that meets their needs and aspirations.

As the strategic housing authority for the area, West Lindsey District Council has the following responsibilities:

  • To provide a housing options advice service to help people find a suitable home and prevent homelessness
  • To hold and maintain a Housing Register of people looking for affordable homes in the area
  • To provide services and secure accommodation for people who do become homeless
  • To understand the local housing market
  • To work with housing associations, developers and private landlords to deliver new affordable housing
  • To improve the quality of housing across the area by providing advice and encouragement to owners and where necessary taking enforcement action
  • To work with owners and managers of private rented properties to provide affordable decent homes that are well managed
  • To return empty properties back into use
  • To regenerate and improve our neighbourhoods
  • To improve energy efficiency in all homes reducing fuel use, costs and carbon emissions
  • To assist our increasing older population to live independently in their own homes
  • To provide Local Housing Allowance for people on low incomes
  • To prepare Local Housing Strategies and Plans
