Between 14th June 2017 and 14th November 2022, how many complaints has the local authority received from council tenants relating to mould?
Of those households that put in a complaint, how many were home to children under 18?
Of those households that put in a complaint, how many put in multiple complaints?
What action was taken in response to each of the complaints?
Hastings Borough Council does not, at this time, have any social housing that is considered 'unfit for human habitation'.
Most of the social housing in the borough is owned and managed by housing associations.
The two biggest housing associations are Optivo and Orbit, please contact them to find out information about their properties:
