Private sector housing
Striving to improve the health, safety and well being of Stroud private sector housing residents.
The Council's Private Sector Housing Renewal Team works towards warm, safe, healthy homes for all the district’s homeowners and private tenants. The team covers all housing which is not owned by the Council, including leasehold properties, privately rented accommodation, housing association properties and those which are owner occupied. Most of Stroud District’s residents (89%) live in properties which are privately owned or privately rented.
