Devon Home Choice is a choice based letting scheme that covers the whole of Devon. It is a partnership between the 10 Devon local authorities and 23 housing associations operating in Devon.
This consultation seeks views on the Devon Home Choice Policy and proposed changes which are due to come into effect from 1st April 2021. The consultation will be open from 1st November 2020 until 31st January 2021.
The Devon Home Choice Policy sets out the Devon housing authorities’ collective social housing scheme which determine priorities, and details the procedures to be followed in allocating housing accommodation as required by the Housing Act 1996.
The consultation aims to obtain feedback from (including but not limited to) Statutory agency workers, Voluntary agency workers, existing tenants of a DHC partner landlord, DHC applicants and any other member of the public.
A paper version of the consultation form is available from your local authority on request.
The Devon Home Choice Policy must meet legislative requirements.
All feedback provided will be considered by the Devon Home Choice Management Board and the outcomes will be published on the website but please note that we will not be able to provide individual responses or feedback.
