The Cabinet Member received a report proposing changes to the HCL allocations policy in September 2012, and subsequently the proposals and a questionnaire were posted on the HCL website for the public to join in.

Appendix 1 to the report confirmed the proposed amendments to the allocations policy and details of the consultation responses were detailed in appendix 2.

Resolved – That the amendments to the Home Choice Allocations Policy as detailed in Appendix 1 to the report be approved.
