Housing Allocation Policy consultation

Take part in the consultation on our Housing Allocation Policy

The Housing Allocation Policy determines who is housed through the housing register (waiting list).

The proposed changes are highlighted in the consultation form - please read the revised policy document and then answer the consultation form questions on this page.

The deadline for responses is 21 February 2023.

If you have any questions or would like to respond in a different format, email housingstrategy@rutland.gov.uk or 01572 758 238.
