Following the Prime Minister’s speech to the nation on Monday 23rd March 2020 regarding the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, the Private Sector Housing & Public Health team will not be undertaking site visits or property inspections until further notice, except in urgent emergency situations (as determined by the case officer). All staff are now working from home and are unable to access incoming post sent to the Council or send outgoing post (apart from in a few exceptional circumstances). This is not a permanent arrangement but will continue for the foreseeable future and until restrictions are lifted on movement and access to certain facilities is made available again.
As well as advice on Coronavirus available via other links on the Arun District Council website, the following links may also be of particular use in regards to Housing issues: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-services-for-people-experiencing-rough-sleeping/covid-19-guidance-for-hostel-or-day-centre-providers-of-services-for-people-experiencing-rough-sleeping
Arun District Council jointly with the National Landlords Association holds forums for private landlords to meet with each other and the authority. The aim of these forums is to give landlords the opportunity to get together to raise issues of concern, exchange views and opinion and provide support to each other. In turn, it gives us as a local authority a platform from which to update landlords on changes in legislation, developments within the council and other issues that may be relevant.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak no meetings will be held until further notice.
If you would like to attend the next meeting, be added to the mailing list, or for further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
