Local Lettings Policy
1. Properties covered by the policy – Farriers Croft, Lindley
2. Priority under local letting policy
The Choice Based Lettings allocations policy will be applied to all applications that are received, however, priority will be given if:
In addition to our plans to create mixed communities on our estates, we are also exploring the potential for letting increased numbers of social housing units through a local lettings policy to working households on low incomes who will benefit from the subsidised rents enjoyed by council and housing association tenants.
The initiative would provide access to high quality homes for working people which provides a step on the housing journey to home ownership.In certain circumstances it may allow us to under occupy a property to provide future sustainability and room for family growth.
Taking this into account, we will specify in adverts where we will give preference to working couples or families. On this particular development we plan to allocate approximately 70% of properties to working households. (for applicants to be classed as working they need to be in employment for a minimum of 17.5 hours per week) The remaining 30% will be allocated using the Choice Based Lettings allocations policy.
If, after three advertising cycles, we can not fulfil the above criteria we will then allocate outside of these parameters. Priority will be given to applicants in the usual way, following the Choice Based Lettings allocations policy.
