How will the council prioritise who gets which home on my new estate and will I have any choice?
Once masterplanning on any estate gets underway, the council will involve residents in the drafting of a Local Lettings Plan. This will set out a process and prioritisation system, which will set out how tenants and homeowners can apply for new-built homes. The council’s allocations policy will still apply, but there will be some flexibility about priorties in the Local Lettings Plans for each estate.
The degree of choice that you will have will depend on where you live now and the masterplan and redevelopment phasing strategy for your estate. It will also depend on the Local Lettings Plan and what level of priority you are eligible for in that Plan.
