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.
