The Private Sector Housing Team (PSHT) at Stratford on Avon District Council will be adhering to, and following current Government guidelines in respect of the Coronavirus pandemic. Social Distancing is paramount during this difficult period and as a precaution to both staff and customers alike, home visits are highly unlikely to be undertaken for the foreseeable future. The PSHT will be working from home and calling into the office when possible, please do not hesitate to contact them by telephone on 01789 260848 or email psht@stratford-dc.gov.uk. We thank you for your understanding during these worrying times.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council is committed to reducing the number of empty properties across the district. The Empty Property Strategy outlines the Council's aims and objectives to tackle this problem and has developed a range of solutions to support empty property owners who are trying to bring their properties back in to use.
