Local Lettings framework
The Council’s Cabinet will consider a framework for the implementation of local
lettings policies at a meeting on Tuesday, 15 December.
Local lettings policies are a tool which can enable greater planing of housing
allocations in particular neighbourhoods or areas, to meet local needs and help
to provide vibrant and sustainable communities.
As a landlord the Council aims to balance the needs of all its tenants by
seeking to create neighbourhoods that are safe and pleasant places to live with
access to employment opportunities and local amenities
The first areas to be considered for local lettings policies are the new
council house building developments at the site of the former Custom House Lane
School in Connah’s Quay and The Walks in Flint.
Councillor Helen Brown, Cabinet Member for Housing said:

housing issues, which in turn would help develop create and maintain vibrant
neighbourhoods for all our tenants.

Flint, currently being considered for planning permission, provide an ideal
opportunity us to develop, shape and assess our framework for local letting
