The Hart district is a great place to live. This means that demand for housing in the area is high.
The housing service aims to:
Ensure an adequate supply of housing
Enable local people to find their own housing solutions
Make the best use of existing housing
Create sustainable homes and neighbourhoods
The way in which the service delivers on these aims is explained in more detail in the Housing Strategy section of the website. This plan is reviewed regularly and agreed in consultation with other organisations and councillors representing the public interest.
In 1994 Hart District Council transferred all its housing stock to Sentinel Housing Association. They, along with various other Registered Providers or Housing Associations provide affordable housing in the District. We continue to hold the Housing Register for their rented properties and advertise any vacancies each week at www.harthomes.org.uk. We also provide housing advice to all that require it, helping people find their own housing solutions.
Although Hart District Council is no longer a provider of housing, we remain committed to the provision of affordable and supported housing through housing associations. The Council also continues to be the statutory housing authority for the area, and working closely with other organisations to ensure that the most acute housing needs in the District are met.
