The current Allocations Policy was last reviewed in July 2013 and since that time emerging case law and the implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 have changed the legislative environment in which the Council's Allocations Policy operates.
This report recommends a number of changes in the allocation policy to better reflect current housing needs and legislation.
