Closed 18 Feb 2018

Opened 21 Dec 2017


The consultation is about the access and eligibility criteria for general needs public sector housing which were introduced in 2002.

In line with the recent updating of Older Persons (Sheltered) criteria in 2016, the timing is right for a review such that:

We can continue to have 'affordable and accessible housing which meets our social and economic needs.'
