Have your say on social housing

The B-with-us social housing allocations policy is changing, and they want your views

B-with-us is a partnership made up of five local authorities and twelve housing associations. They work together to allocate social housing in the Pennine Lancashire area. It is the system used for advertising most housing association properties.

There are currently over 9,000 active applicants on the B-with-us Housing Register. Each year only around 2,500 of these applicants are rehoused, and there are new applicants applying every day. This is because only a small number of households leave their tenancies to make homes available.

Because of this high demand, B-with-us have to make sure that the homes that are available go to those who need them most.

To do this, B-with-us have been reviewing the rules they use to decide who gets social housing, to make sure they help those with the greatest need.

To help them, you can complete a short questionnaire to give your views about the changes to the B-with-us Allocations Policy.

You have until 24 January 2020 to give your views.
