Allocations Policy Review - Phase 2

Closed 26 Nov 2017

Opened 10 Nov 2017

Results expected 26 Jan 2018

Overview

This is the second phase of our Allocations Policy consultation

An initial consultation was carried out in June/July 2017 with the following people:

  • People on the Housing Register
  • Social landlords
  • Support Organisations
  • Parish Councils
  • Charitable Organisations and Community Groups with an interest in housing issues

From this initial consultation we have created a revised Allocations Policy which we are now seeking views on ahead of agreeing a final version to be put in place next year.

About the Allocations Policy

The Council's Allocations and Lettings Policy sets out who can apply for social housing in North West Leicestershire. The policy also sets out how we decide who is selected for social housing.

The policy aims to ensure that those home seekers who are in the greatest housing need are given reasonable preference

 

 

Why We Are Consulting

The current allocations policy has been in place since 2013.

This review aims to:

  • Ensure the new policy is fair and reasonable
  • Ensure the policy is as clear and transparent as possible
  • Make sure the policy reflects recent and future legislation

What Happens Next

The consulation will take place in 2 phases:

Phase 1 - initial consultation (20th-30th June)

Phase 2 - draft new policy available for consultation (10th - 24th November)

It is ancicipated that the new policy will be agreed by the Council's Cabinet in January 2017
