Effective action and early intervention are among the key objectives in East Herts Council's plans to prevent homelessness in the district.

The strategy also aims to ensure that accommodation and support is available for people who become homeless in East Herts.

Jan Goodeve, executive member for housing, said: "Homelessness and poor housing conditions blight lives, damage health and reduce opportunities. They negatively impact communities in significant ways. That's why preventing homelessness is a priority for the council."

Last year the council's housing service accepted homelessness applications from 54 households. The most common priority categories were households with dependent children or pregnant women, vulnerability as a result of mental health problems and vulnerability as a result of physical disability.
