Social housing drop-in session

Home » Newsroom » Latest News » Social housing drop-in session

Cheshire Homechoice co-ordinator Marilyn Houston will be on hand to help residents find out more about the allocation of social housing in Cheshire East – and have their say.

She will be available in the reception areas at Delamere House, Crewe, on Monday, June 11th, between 10.00am — 1.00pm and 2.00pm — 4.30pm; 

Cheshire Homechoice’s allocation policy is being reviewed. The policy determines the priority of people’s application and the waiting time they will experience for a new home.

Residents have an opportunity to have their say on what they think is important.  For example:

● Should the housing register be open to all whatever their financial circumstances?

● Should housing in rural areas be prioritised for those with a connection to that community?

● Should extra priority be given to those leaving the Armed Forces?

● Should we encourage people to downsize from family homes they are under-occupying to free them up?
