Local Lettings Policies

Section 167(2E) of the 1996 Act enables housing authorities to allocate particular accommodation to people of a particular description, whether or not they fall within the reasonable preference categories. Local lettings policies may be used to achieve a wide variety of housing management and other housing policy objectives. So for example, local lettings policies may be used to lower the proportion of older children/young adults on an estate to reduce the incidences of anti-social behaviour; or to deal with concentrations of deprivation by setting aside a proportion of vacancies for applicants who are in employment.

From time to time a member of the Bucks Home Choice Partnership may adopt a local lettings policy that will apply to a small proportion of the properties on the Bucks Home Choice website and will be available in hard copy by request. Each local lettings policy will state clearly the justification for its being adopted and operated.

When a property that is affected by a local lettings policy is advertised, the advertisement will state which applicants will be eligible to express an interest in that property.

Please refer to the links below for details of each individual local lettings policy currently in force.
