Social housing in Fareham is either owned and managed by the Council or by Housing Associations (sometimes called Registered Providers). By law, all housing authorities must have a policy which sets out how these homes are allocated to residents in housing need.
Our existing policy, written in 2014, needs to be reviewed to reflect new legislation and changes to service delivery. We want to ensure that the allocation of social housing is fair, transparent and prioritises people according to need.
We believe that overall, the existing criteria people must meet in order to be accepted onto the Housing Register are well balanced. However, there are a small number of changes we would like to propose and are looking for the views of our tenants, residents, partners and stakeholders on these.
The consultation team has now closed the online comments form and are analysing the results.
