New Housing Allocations Policy - You May Need to Re-Register

Central Bedfordshire Council is reminding people on its housing register to go online and re-register if they want to continue bidding for properties in the area.

A new Allocations Policy, launched on 29 October, has changed the rules about who can join the register, with greater assistance being given to local people.

Only people in housing need who live or work in the area can join the main housing register. However, a separate housing register for older people does not require applicants to live or work in the area.

Councillor Carole Hegley, Executive Member for Social Care, Health and Housing, said: “The new rules have been designed to give local people easier access to social housing when they most need it. We are also going to give our support to those local people who are in work by giving them a higher priority on the register.”

The new online registration is simple and easy to use. A short questionnaire helps people to decide if they are eligible for the new register before going on to complete an application form. After successfully completing the form, customers will automatically receive information allowing them to bid for properties.

To be eligible to bid on the cycle than runs between 6 and 11 November, customers must re-register by 10 November.
Visit www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/housing for more information or to go online to complete the application form.

For advice or assistance please contact: CBC Customer Services on 0300 300 8302, or the Housing Register Team on 0300 300 4997/5072/5085 or housingregister@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.
