Council housing

We own around 3,100 homes throughout the district. In 2004 we adopted a shared vision:

"Through high quality services, delivered in partnership with customers, the provision of well maintained affordable homes that meet the requirements and aspirations of the people of South Derbyshire".

The main areas of service are to our tenants and to those in need of housing.  Our main areas of service delivery are rent collection and recovery, repairs and improvement works, empty homes and estate management, sheltered service and CareLine, tenant participation.

Tenants' handbook

We have produced a handbook for all of our existing and new tenants which explains everything they need to know about their tenancy. Its a handy guide with information on your home, who to contact across the council, what the responsibilities of us as a landlord are and what we expect of our tenants. The handbook is available at the bottom of this page below related documents. It will be updated during 2012. More about your council tenancy agreement.
