Housing Policy

Housing Allocation Scheme and Policy

The Allocation Scheme sets out who qualifies to go on the Housing Register, how priority is given to applicants with differing housing circumstances, and the procedures that are to be followed when applicants are selected to be allocated accommodation by the Council.

Tenancy Policy

To comply with the Localism Act 2011, the council needed to adopt a Tenancy Policy prior to March 2013. You can download the Tenancy Policy below which includes Tenancy Options, Rents and Accommodation Charges, Tenancy Exchanges and Succession Rights.

Regulatory Services Enforcement Policy

The council is responsible for enforcing a wide range of statutory provisions relating to housing and environmental conditions affecting health and safety. 

Local Lettings Schemes

We are taking a different approach to allocations in the area to help us achieve a balanced community with sustainable tenancies.

In order to achieve this the Councils Allocations Policy includes the provision to create ‘Local Lettings Schemes’ for specific areas or developments.
