    Hampshire Home Choice 

    Affordable Housing - Choice Based Lettings
    The way housing association homes in the District are allocated has undergone a significant change. Choice Based Lettings requires vacant social housing properties to be advertised and invites customers to apply or 'place a bid of interest' on properties they would like to be considered for. The Choice Based Lettings Scheme is called Hampshire Home Choice.

    Hampshire Home Choice is a sub-regional partnership that is made up of:
    •Havant Borough Council
    •East Hampshire District Council
    •Test Valley Borough Council
    •Winchester City Council

    Eastleigh Borough Council will "Go Live" on Hampshire Home Choice on the 26th February 2014. Social housing in the Eastleigh area will be advertised via Hampshire Home Choice and the 'Eastleigh Homechoice' Housing Register will close.

     To provide a single system of allocations across the Council areas
    •To provide a system that customers can understand and which is both open and fair
    •Increase the sustainability of local communities
    •Facilitate opportunities for mobility across the sub-region
    •Assist customers in the highest assessed need and reduce homelessness
    •Ensure that vulnerable customers are supported in being able to participate in the scheme

    Vulnerable People
    To ensure that everyone is able to take part in the Hampshire Home Choice scheme a number of measures has been put in place to protect vulnerable people from being disadvantaged.

    •Provide information in alternative formats where necessary.
    •Develop partnership working with support agencies
    •Undertake monitoring and regular reviews of the sub-regional Allocations Framework
    •Offer assistance to customers who require additional help with the scheme
    •Implement a full monitoring system to ensure vulnerable people are using the scheme successfully
