Important Notice: (Tuesday 24th March 2020) Due to government guidance only emergency repairs are now being undertaken.

A group of residents, staff, councillors and representatives of interested organisations have developed and published a framework policy for dealing with complaints about nuisance and anti-social behaviour received by Housing Services.
Anyone found to be vandalising property or creating graffiti on our estates runs the real risk of losing their home or, if under 18, their family's home.
For further information and how to report an instance of anti-social behaviour please visit our Anti-Social Behaviour web page.
Brentwood Borough Council sometimes requires you to fill in an income and expenditure form if there is a need to have a better understanding of your financial circumstances.
Before you begin, it would be useful to have recent bank statements and bills available to refer to.
Please try to be as accurate as possible when filling in the information as incorrect information could lead to problems with the assessment of your circumstances.
There is a calculator included at the top of this form to help you correctly calculate bills that are collected at different increments, such as weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly bills.
