housing and planning
In partnership with housing associations, the Council enables the supply of new affordable homes both for rent and low-cost ownership.
To tackle homelessness, advice and assistance is provided to help people to find suitable accommodation. Housing association homes for rent in Broadland are let to households listed on the Council's Common Housing Register.
The Council is responsible for deciding whether a development - from an extension on a house to a new shopping centre - should go ahead. We ensure that development is allowed where it is needed, while ensuring that the character and the amenity of Broadland are not adversely affected..
