Housing Allocation Policy

A new housing allocation policy is required to bring the policy in line with legislative changes and to address the current housing supply and demand challenges facing

Government guidance states that all Housing authorities must have an allocation scheme for determining priorities, and for defining the procedures to be followed in allocating housing accommodation; and they must allocate in accordance with that scheme.
