The B-with-us allocations policy is changing. Have your say!
B-with-us is a partnership made up of five local authorities, including Burnley Council, and 12 housing associations who work together to allocate social housing in the Pennine Lancashire area, and is the system a number of housing associations use to allocate most of our available properties in Pennine Lancashire.
There are currently over 9,000 active applicants on the B-with-us housing register, but each year only approximately 2,500 of these applicants are rehoused, with new applicants applying every day. This is because only a small number of households leave their tenancies to make homes available.
Due to homes being in such high demand, B-with-us have to make sure that available homes go to those who need them most.
To do this, B-with-us has been reviewing the rules it uses to decide who gets social housing, to make sure it help those with the greatest need, and B-with-us wants your views.
Please visit https://togetherhousingdigital.co.uk/form/6cFubhOq/khi10nZcE/b-with-us-s... to complete a short questionnaire to give your views about the changes to the B-with-us allocations policy.
The consultation will be available to 24th January 2020.
