Pebmarsh Parish Council welcomed Tim Lucas from Braintree District Council to the Parish Council meeting on 13th November 2019 who gave a detailed overview on how local housing works and how to make sure those in the village have the information to register.
There is a link to the presentation by Tim here: Local Connection in Social Housing and a link to the Deed of Variation here Deed of Variation which includes the ‘cascade’ by which Braintree District Council considers local connection.
There is not a paper application form to register for housing but the following is a link to the website to apply: https://www.gatewaytohomechoice.org.uk/
Alternatively telephone on 01376 552525 to make an application over the phone.
Any concerns about the management or maintenance of the homes have to be directed to the landlord but an alternative would be:
