This is a scheme to support homeowners, private and social tenants in the Sedgemoor, Taunton Deane and West Somerset areas to become landlords and let out their spare bedrooms to earn additional income. The project itself is run by Hinkley Point and receives council funding. It is designed to reduce homelessness, to keep people in their homes and to make ends meet.
The project’s aim is to ensure that lodgings are created safely and managed professionally, through monitoring, interim inspections, offering support/guidance and with the help of grant-funding of up to £1,000 to assist, if necessary.
