Nottingham City Council Housing Services

We are committed to keeping residents at the heart of everything we do and providing a range of services to support those living in the homes we manage.

Nottingham City Council Housing Services

Here at Nottingham City Council Housing Services (NCCHS) we look after the city’s 25,000 council homes – these homes make up around a fifth of all Nottingham households.

NCCHS provides a full maintenance service as well as a range of services to support people in their homes. Our talented and committed workforce seeks to provide high standards of service to our customers, and we put residents at the heart of everything we do. This includes opportunities for tenants to get involved in their communities and support for tenants in financial difficulty, requiring benefit advice or employment support as well as specialist support for domestic abuse survivors or for those experiencing anti-social behaviour.

Trade bricklaying image

“Housing staff are great if there is a problem inside or out of your house - you report the problem and they are there to do the job. All of the staff are really polite and friendly."

Clifton cladding houses

“My community is a lovely place to live. The houses look great with their external wall insulation, and the landscape has plants, trees and shrubs. The council has also improved our community’s parks, communal areas, street lighting and so on. The whole look and feel of the area over the last few years has improved, and it’s very nice and welcoming. I see that in other communities I visit too."

Disability Diversity

“There are lots of volunteering opportunities and training courses for tenants, and I have attended some myself since 2010.”
