Our Housing team have been busy keeping you safe, and making
your communities even better places to live. Here's a
snapshot of some of their recent work.
Eliminating fire risks
An urgent fire safety case in one of our high-rise flats was reported. The Housing
Officer found a brick shed filled with rubbish.
The Housing Officer, working with a local Environmental Health Officer, spoke with the
tenant who had moved out of the home. Since they still had the tenancy, the tenant
remained responsible for that home.
The tenant came back and removed all of the rubbish within 24 hours, reducing the fire
risk to other residents.
Tackling crime & Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)
A resident had been hit by a neighbour's car during a domestic incident,
and another tenant was found guilty of causing a noise nuisance as well
as failing to look after their property. Some of these tenants were also
failing to pay their rent.
Following investigations into all cases, applications were made to
Grimsby County Court by the Tenancy Enforcement Team for
possession of the home.
Court Orders were obtained in each case, and evictions were carried out.
