Private Sector House Condition Survey 2007

Private Sector House Condition Surveys

From time to time the local authority conduct surveys to establish the general condition of properties within a particular area of the Borough. The findings of the boroughwide comprehensive Private Sector House Condition Survey carried out in 2007 showed better dwelling conditions and energy efficiency in Redcar & Cleveland than found nationally.

Such surveys relate to specific issues such as, HHSRS, disrepair, area renewal, houses in multiple occupation, empty homes and energy efficiency of the stock. The costs however of making the necessary improvements to dwelling conditions and the suggested improvements to energy efficiency, identified in the 2007 survey, remain quite prohibitive.

The survey concluded that a wide range of measures would need to be considered, including finance from the local authority and the use of landlords and owners own finances as well as advice, to achieve improvements to the housing and, importantly, to prevent further deterioration of the private housing stock across the borough.

The report will provide essential information for continued developing of the Councils Housing Strategy and associated policies.

Update 2016

In order to make certain this evidence is up to date, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has commissioned an independent assessment of private sector house conditions across the borough which will inform future housing policies.

The report will be published in Spring 2016.
