Changes to Home Choice Plus Allocations Policy

Following a review last year, an amended Home Choice Plus Allocations Policy has been agreed. If you would like more details about the amended Allocations Policy, you can read the full document and get more information from the Home Choice Plus website.

What is changing?

The changes to the scheme include the introduction of a reduced priority banding; changes to the way we assess overcrowding and disrepair, and how your banding is assessed if you are homeless across all the Home Choice Plus partnership areas.

When is it changing?

The policy changes will take effect from the 1st April 2013.

What do I need to do?

Due to the changes to the Home Choice Plus allocation scheme we need to collect additional information from you to update your application and to review your banding. You will receieve a personalised letter detailing the changes and what we need from you. Your banding may change because of the new policy. But please note that we will only write to you again if your banding has changed.

Please fully complete the form and return it within 21 days of the receipt of your letter. The date you need to return your form by will usually fall around Friday the 15th March 2013. 

A pre-paid envelope will be enclosed.  Please note if your form is not returned your application will be cancelled.

What happens next?

Once we have received and processed your completed form, we will write to you again if there are any changes to your banding. Please note that due to the large numbers of applicants on the register, we will not write to you again if there are no changes to your banding after 1st April.
