Private landlords in Doncaster are to be rewarded for providing good service to their tenants as part of a new council scheme.

The strategy, which aims to ensure the quality of private housing in the city is up to scratch, will also seek to identify and clamp down on rogue landlords.

It will offer homeowners support and financial guidance to help fend off the effects of the current economic climate.

Those whose services are found to be of a high standard will also be given the chance to sign up to a new voluntary accreditation scheme.

Councillor Andrea Milner, cabinet member for connected communities, said it is "crucial"for residents in the borough that high-quality housing is available.

"It is also an opportunity for us to recognise the landlords that are working hard to help us achieve our goals for good quality housing through the accreditation scheme,"she added.
