Choice based lettings replaces a housing waiting list. Once you have registered for housing and have a reference number you can bid on houses suitable for your needs.

Why was Choice Based Lettings introduced?

Choice Based Lettings is a clear, open, understandable, fair and transparent way to access social housing and is used in most parts of the country. It also means we no longer maintain a waiting list.

With Choice Based Lettings, we do not need to contact you when a suitable home becomes available. Our properties will be advertised so that you can choose (within certain guidelines), which ones you are interested in by placing bids on them.

The significant benefit of Choice Based Lettings is that it gives you choice in where you would like to live. Choice Based Lettings provides you with more choice and information to help you find the right accommodation in Stevenage for you and your family.
