Social Housing Allocations Policy review 2019

In spring 2019 we conducted a consultation and engagement exercise to help inform the development of a revised policy for allocating social housing.

Over 500 of you responded, and we have used your feedback, together with legislation, Southend 2050 ambitions, business needs and aims of the Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2018 – 2028 to devise a draft new policy, to be brought in next year.

Attached is the draft new policy, and a summary of the key changes that we are proposing.  We are keen to hear your views on this.

Should you or someone you know require this document in other formats, please contact the council on 01702 215038
