Council's housing allocation policy - further consultation

The City Council carried out a consultation on its housing allocation policy in late 2021.   

Due to the time lapsed since, it is now keen to re-engage with local people before looking to progress the policy changes which will be reported to a future council committee meeting in early 2023.

Since the housing allocation policy was last reviewed in 2016, there have been several significant changes in legislation and guidance in relation to how social rented housing is allocated.

The council has engaged with its common housing register partners (such as Hillcrest Housing Association) and finalised the consultation material to review its allocation policy.

Just a reminder that the consultation will remain live only until 23rd December so this is a last chance to give your views.
