Housing strategy

It is not just council tenants Tamworth Borough Council works with. We carry out a range of projects and other work to help tackle housing issues across Tamworth. This ranges from homelessness advice, insulation advice, debt management and improving housing stock across the borough so people can access safe, healthy housing.
