Housing List Residents MUST Re-apply


Housing list residents across Dorset urged to re-apply. Residents currently on the housing lists in Borough of Poole; North Dorset District Council; Purbeck District Council; West Dorset District Council; or Weymouth & Portland Borough Council are being asked to reapply to the housing registers. This is because the councils, which form the Dorset Choice Based Lettings Partnership, have reviewed the policies which set out how social housing is allocated. Registration takes place from 29 September until 11 November 2014, and the new allocation policy will take effect from 17 December 2014.
