What is the Allocation or Lettings Policy?

north yorkshire homechoice logo Feb 2017Social Housing in Ryedale is advertised on the North Yorkshire Home Choice website. All properties are allocated in accordance with the common allocations policy. Ryedale District Council and Yorkshire Housing are amongst the partners who have developed this policy and they work together with other local authorities and housing providers across North Yorkshire according to strict guidelines.

How are applicants prioritised?

The Choice Based Lettings system does not work on points but applicants are banded into four categories according to their housing need, these categories are Emergency, Gold, Silver or Bronze.

For further information please visit the North Yorkshire Home Choice website.
