Allocations Policy Review

Consultation Feedback

We recently asked our customers to complete a short survey to give their opinions on the proposed changes to the B-with-us Allocations Policy. The consultation ran from 13th December 2019 until 24th January 2020 and was completely anonymous.
We received over 1,900 responses to the consultation and are now in the process of collating the feedback received - when we have further updates on the outcomes of the consultation, they will be updated here.

Applicants will be notified in advance of any changes being implemented to the B-with-us Allocations Policy, and no changes will take place until some time after April 2020.

Information about the consultation and proposed changes:

There are currently over 9,000 active applicants on the B-with-us Housing Regsiter, but each year only approximately 2,500 of these applicants are rehoused, with new applicants applying every day.
This is because only a small number of households leave their tenancies to make homes available.

Due to homes being in such high demand, B-with-us have to make sure that available homes go to those who need them most.

To do this, B-with-us have been reviewing the rules we use to decide who gets social housing, to make sure we help those with the greatest need.

There are six main changes we asked for your feedback about (select each point for more information):

A full summary of the changes can be viewed here.


Updates about the Allocations Policy Review will be added to this page as the review progresses.
