How we invest in your council homes
Find out how we use our funding to improve the service we provide for our council tenants
The Brighton & Hove standard
We make sure all of our council homes meet our Brighton & Hove standard.
This means that our homes will:
- meet the current standard for housing set by the government
- be in a reasonable state of repair
- have reasonably modern facilities
- be warm and comfortable
- include any additional items agreed with tenants
You can find full information in our Brighton & Hove standard guide (PDF 168KB).
We have 5 priorities for our funding to keep council homes to the Brighton & Hove standard:
- Improve services to an excellent standard and focus everything we do on residents.
- Improve and maintain the quality of homes and neighbourhoods.
- Deliver value for money services and develop a 30 year business plan.
- Make best use of our available housing to meet housing need.
- Make sure that our housing helps reduce inequality and creates opportunity.
