Uttlesford District Council's Housing Allocations Scheme

The council  implemented its latest Allocation Scheme on 1 January 2015 following a decision by Cabinet.

As from this date, applicants must meet one of the following criteria to be eligible to join the council's housing register and be a member of Home Option:

  • lived in the district for the past three years,
  • be receiving support from immediate family members who have lived in the district for the past five years
  • worked permanently in the district for the past three years for at least 24 hours a week

As well as the local connection criteria there arefinancial eligibility criteria that applicants are required to meet. If an applicant is judged to have sufficient money from income or savings to be able to meet their own housing costs by either open market purchase or open market renting they will not be eligible to join the housing register.
