Housing Allocations Policy Consultation

Date(s)
Monday 17th February (15:00) - Monday 11th May 2020 (23:59)
Description

BCP Council has drafted a new person-centred social housing allocation policy, which seeks to ensure its valuable housing resources go to the Council’s most vulnerable residents.

In October 2019 there were over 6,000 households waiting for an offer of social housing but only 834 properties became available for letting during the whole of the 2018/2019 financial year.

This policy sets out the criteria used when assessing applications for social housing and how these properties are nominated. All nominations to vacant social housing properties owned and managed by BCP Council, Poole Housing Partnership and local housing associations will be made in accordance with the policy.

If you’re a tenant, resident or landlord living in the BCP area, or you live outside of the area and want to move into social housing, you could be affected by these proposals and we would love to hear what you think.

The Consultation Summary Document provides a summary of the key proposals and below you can read the full draft policy along with supporting appendices before responding:

You can provide your views on the proposals by completing the consultation survey.

If you have any questions about the consultation or need the documents in a different format, please email consultationforhousing@bcpcouncil.gov.uk

The survey will run from the 17 February 2020 until 11 May 2020.

Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel the remaining consultation events based on advice from Government in relation to Covid-19. You can still contact us using the email address above or call the office on 01202 795213 if you need help or assistance to complete the survey online.
