Allocations Review

We undertook a review of our housing allocations scheme that was implemented on 1 June 2018.

The initial feedback has resulted in some changes to our Housing Allocation Policy along with our Under Occupation Policy.
 
We will continue to monitor the scheme and further changes will be made as necessary.
 
The changes implemented so far include:

  • Under-occupiers of Social Housing will now receive a priority banding and be able to bid on smaller properties through Choice Based Lettings.
  • The Local Connection has been amended from the last 5 years to 5 years out of the last 7 years.
  • Non-dependent children (over 18 years old) can now be considered as part of the household.
