18 January 2017

The consultation on the county's lettings system for social and affordable housing is now available.

To have your say, please visit the council's social and affordable housing consultation webpage. The consultation closes on Wednesday 15 March 2017.

19 December 2016

Working jointly with its nine housing partners, Herefordshire Council is supporting a proposal to develop a new approach to how the county’s lettings system for social and affordable housing will operate.

The new approach will aim to give greater choice and more direct access for customers to homes managed by housing providers, whilst being more responsive and appropriate for the modern world, such as being mobile friendly, as well as making the operation of the lettings process more affordable for housing providers.

There will be an eight week consultation period from January 2017 and all residents of Herefordshire are encouraged to have their say. We would particularly like to hear from those currently seeking accommodation, those who have used the county’s letting system in the past and those who may want to use the alternative system in the future.
