Development of a Common Housing Allocation Policy for Renfrewshire
Williamsburgh HA, together with Renfrewshire Council and three local housing associations, has developed a draft Common Housing Allocation Policy for Renfrewshire. This will provide a joint approach to allocating Housing Association and Council homes throughout Renfrewshire.
Together, we are committed to providing high quality, affordable housing that meets peoples' housing needs. The new proposed draft Common Housing Allocation Policy has been prepared to reflect the changes being introduced by the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014.
Your views on how we apply the new legislation and deliver our commitment to meet people's houisng needs within the policy are very important to us. We are, therefore, holidng a two-part consultation process on the proposed draft common housing allocation policy.
Firstly, an online survey is being hosted on each partner landlord's website. To allow us to fully consider your views, we would be pleased if you would take some time to complete the survey before 30th November 2018. To access the survey, please click here.
The proposed draft Common Housing Allocation Policy, along with a summary version of the policy are available from the following web links:
Should you require this information as a paper survey, or in another format, please phone 0141 887 8613 before Friday, 16th November 2018.
Secondly, we are holding informal drop-in events to provide opportunities for tenants, applicants, registered tenants' associations and other interested parties to discuss our proposed policy. You are welcome to come to the event that is easiest for you to attend.
The drop-in events are being held at:
- Johnstone Town Hall, on Tuesday, 13th November, between 11.00am and 2.00pm.
- Paisley Town Hall, on Wednesday, 14th November, between 4.00pm and 7.00pm.
- RenfrewTown Hall, on Thursday, 15th November, between 11.00am and 2.00pm.
Following the consultation process, we will be considering carefully all responses relating to the draft Common Allocation Policy.
Results of the consultation exercise will be published at a later date.
