Housing allocations policy


Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council operates a choice based approach to letting vacant properties. Properties are openly advertised each week and the person looking for a home chooses to apply for the properties they are interested in.

We work in partnership with the six district councils in Leicestershire (excluding Leicester City). Our aim is to create a simpler, more transparent scheme with common areas of housing policy. In this scheme we will assess an applicant's housing situation and place them in one of four housing need bands.

The housing allocation policy (PDF) is available to download. Should you require this document in any other format, including audio, larger print or an alternative language, please contact the Housing Options Team on 01455 238141.

If you are applying for council housing, further information can be found by visiting finding a home.
