Anyone worried about the effect of the bedroom tax is being urged to get in touch with South Holland District Council.

It follows a recent case in which the council’s strategic housing team helped in the rehousing of two benefit recipients in one-bedroom properties, resulting in a much-needed four bedroom home being made available.

The district council owns just 15 four-bedroom properties, making it difficult to home large families.

Coun Christine Lawton, portfolio holder for Housing Landlord, said: “It’s really important that people do approach us for advice.

“This case highlights how our housing advice team is able to assist, and the fact that we will now be able to house another family is good news.”
