Following recent public consultation of our Housing Allocations Policy we have considered all comments and the review of the policy is now complete. Bucks Home Choice Allocations Policy 2019 has now been formally adopted by all District Councils within the partnership. We plan to implement the changes and for the new Policy to go live on 1st October 2019. Until this time applications will be assessed under the current Bucks Home Choice Policy (1st May 2014).
The new Policy has been developed to:
- reflect changes in the law relating to our statutory duties
- prevent homelessness
- make the best use of the limited housing stock available
- prioritise housing for those in the greatest housing need
