The purpose of the Allocation Scheme is to determine the order in which properties are allocated to people on the Council’s housing list and existing tenants who need a transfer to a different property.

The current Allocation Scheme was made in accordance with Section 22 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 and the Social Housing Allocation Regulations 2011. It was adopted by the Elected Members in June 2011 following consultation with the Housing Strategic Policy Committee.

Changes to the Scheme were made in October 2016 to allow for the introduction of a HAP Transfer List.
