Local Lettings Plans & Planning Restrictions

Local Lettings Plans

The Home-Options Policy gives us the flexibility to introduce local lettings plans.

We use local lettings plans to promote sustainability and create balanced communities. We may use these for new-build schemes or for existing accommodation. We may also use them for specific areas or properties. For example, we may decide to offer some new homes to people in full-time work or to allow smaller families to move into three bedroom houses if we know that local schools are overcrowded.

If we are using a local lettings policy when we let a property, we will make this clear in the advert.

Planning Restrictions

In some rural areas, planning permissions may affect to whom we can offer homes.

The homes will usually have been built to meet local demands for housing. The planning permission will often restrict us to letting those homes to applicants who have a local connection to the place where the homes are built or the surrounding parishes. Sometimes, you may need a local connection of ten years or more to qualify.

Where planning restrictions affect a property, we will tell you in the advert.
