Melton Borough Council

All Council Tax bills in the Melton Borough are showing a 3.1% increase for the LCC element of the 2018/19 bill. The bill should show a 3.0% increase.

The error has occurred with the percentage comparison of the LCC elements in the 2018/19 bill with the 2017/18 bill. Please be assured that the charges within the bill are correct.

Housing associations

Housing associations are similar to local authorities as they provide homes at affordable rents. Housing associations also build new homes, and convert and improve existing properties.

Housing associations are voluntary organisations that do not trade for profit. They provide homes at affordable rents and in some cases will specialise in certain types of accommodation. They often compliment the availability of accommodation that is already supplied by local authorities. 

Housing associations operate in a very similar way to Local Authorities and have waiting lists for accommodation.
Housing associations provide a variety of accommodation types for rent, as well as 'low cost' shared ownership accommodation.
