Private Sector Housing, Planning, Environmental Health and Building Control functions are generally spread across a number of Service Departments which vary from one Council to another.

  • The “Private Sector Housing” link is the best general page we can find.
  • If searching the local authority’s website doesn’t help, try calling the general switchboard number which is given.
  • Where your Council operates a “Trusted Trader” scheme, a link is given.
  • Please let us know if any of the links don’t work – councils make more changes to their websites than we can keep up with.
