Housing Policies

Private Sector Housing Renewal

We know that living in a warm, safe house is important to us all. The  Private Sector Housing Renewal Policy (PDF) [152KB] (opens new window)  contains a range of grants and loans to help people achieve this. 

Tenancy Strategy

The Localism Act 2011 places a duty on all local authorities to produce a  Tenancy Strategy (PDF) [1MB] (opens new window)

This strategy sets out how we expect Registered Providers (Housing Associations) with affordable housing in the area to respond to the relevant changes introduced by the Act.

Housing Allocation Policy

The Local Allocation policy sets out how the council will deal with specific local issues outside of Devon Home Choice. It also includes exceptions to the Devon Home Choice scheme.
