Housing Services

Housing Services aims to help people find the homes they want and in neighbourhoods they want to live in. The city council owns many homes which are available to rent, but the people who live in them are even more important.

There is information here for people looking for somewhere to live, those who already have a home and for landlords who have homes available for others to rent.  You will find information on our affordable homes development plans as well as our policies and strategies.
