Housing policies and allocations scheme

We publish our policies for assessing housing priority and allocating social housing in a document called the Housing Allocation Scheme.

Supply and allocation reports

This annual report reviews the demand for and supply of social rented housing and low-cost home ownership for the last financial year and considers supply and demand projections for the forthcoming financial year. It also makes proposals for policy developments. A mid-year update is also produced.
