Housing help

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

Issue

An urgent fire safety case in one of our high-rise flats was reported. The Housing

Officer found a brick shed filled with rubbish.

Action

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.

Outcome

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)

Issue

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.

Action

Following investigations into all cases, applications were made to

Grimsby County Court by the Tenancy Enforcement Team for

possession of the home.

Outcome

Court Orders were obtained in each case, and evictions were carried out.
