Housing Allocations Policy


1. Introduction

We are proposing some changes to our “Housing Allocations Policy” which sets out how South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils assess applications to join the housing register and how we allocate social housing within the districts.
There is now an opportunity to provide your comments on the policy, but before you do, please 
read the summary document which outlines the main changes proposed to the policy or the full draft policy below. We are inviting comments on the proposed changes from Monday 15 October until 5pm on Monday 26 November 2018.

Feedback received from the consultation will be considered when preparing the final version of the policy. We will publish a report on the feedback received and the councils' response to the main issues on our websites: southoxon.gov.uk/haveyoursaywhitehorsedc.gov.uk/haveyoursay

You can also register your interest in being added to our council database to receive updates on other council consultations on these pages. 

Please do not include queries about your individual housing application as these cannot be dealt with as part of the consultation process. If you have a query regarding your housing, please email housing@southandvale.gov.uk or call 01235 422436. 

Data protection

Only the names of organisations submitting responses will be published. Consultation data will be deleted after the report has been published.
