Council housing allocation scheme

The allocation scheme says who we can offer a council property to, and how we decide who should be housed first. We need an allocation scheme because we don’t have enough properties to meet
demand. Our allocation scheme is designed to be fair – it works on a points system, which reflects people’s different housing needs.
