Review of the Bucks Home Choice Allocations Policy

There is a very high demand for housing via Bucks Home Choice and the number of vacancies is far lower than the number of applicants. The Localism Act 2011 has given Councils more flexibility on how they can allocate tenancies. Councils now have more freedom to decide who should qualify for housing and how they should be prioritised.
