The District Council's responsibilities under the Housing Act 1996 include giving housing advice free of charge. In the Stratford-on-Avon District Council area this service is provided by the in-house Housing Advice Team. The Team is based at Elizabeth House in Stratford-upon-Avon and runs outreach surgeries by appointment in Southam, Shipston and Alcester.
The Housing Advice Team is responsible for running Home Choice Plus on behalf of housing associations in the District.
