Housing allocations policy consultation
All local authorities are required by law to publish a Housing Allocations Policy. The current Allocations Policy was adopted by the council in July 2013 and we have recently undertaken a review of that policy. This has identified a number of minor changes needed to reflect current legislation and guidance. The key additions to the policy are:

1. Introduction of key workers (Section 4.7)
2. Consequences of failure to bid and direct offers (Section 10.4)
3. Old homeless cases awarded additional priority (Section 4.1)
4. One suitable offer rather than two (Section 3.11)
5. Households who owe a former tenancy debt accepted onto the housing register with a reduced priority. (Section 6.2)

There are currently 2,642 households on the council’s housing register. All applications are verified and households are awarded a banding position reflective of their housing need. This could be A, B, C, & D with A being for households that have an immediate need to move.

We are conducting a six week public consultation in order to understand your views on the draft Allocations Policy.

You can read the policy in full here: www.thanet.gov.uk/housingallocationpolicy

The period for comment runs from Friday 9 November to Friday 21 December 2018.
