Welcome to Bucks Home Choice

Bucks Home Choice is the scheme by which social housing is allocated in Buckinghamshire. It is operated by a partnership of Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe District Councils, together with the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust.

The scheme advertises social rented properties and aims to give more choice about where you live and when you move. There is a severe shortage of housing in the area and therefore you will need to consider all other housing options available to you.

All applicants are assessed according to their housing need, given a priority band and advised what size property they are eligible for.

Once you have received your assessment you can see which properties you are eligible to bid for. This can be done by logging in with your Bucks Home Choice number and date of birth. You decide which properties you would like to be considered for and place a bid on up to 3 properties in each advertising cycle. The properties are usually let to the person in the highest priority band.

Draft Bucks Home Choice Policy Consultation - Update

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 existing Bucks Home Choice Policy(1st May 2014). The new Policy has been developed to:

• reflect changes in the law relating to our statutory duties
• prevents homelessness
• makes the best use of the limited housing stock available
• prioritise housing for those in the greatest housing need

We had asked for your feedback on the above changes. The consultation is now closed, thank you to all who submitted comments. Comments that have been received are now being considered.

For more information please read the new policy and summary of changes.

If you would like to know more on the changes, please read the following documents: Housing allocations policy background, Bucks Home Choice draft policy and Summary of Changes.
