In Dudley, as in other parts of the country, there are more people looking for council housing than there are available properties. Council housing is not suitable for everyone and there are other affordable housing options available.
The Housing Options service offers general advice on a wide range of options for renting and buying property. Staff can also refer customers to specialist services such as mediation, debt prevention and home improvements as well as adaptations that can support people to stay in their existing homes.
