This latest Manchester City Council update will be sharing information on the review of the Manchester Housing Allocation Scheme and there will be time to ask questions
The Manchester Housing Allocation Scheme sets out the principles and rules by which people apply for social housing, including who qualifies to join the housing register and how the council prioritises who gets a home.
Manchester’s housing situation has changed significantly since 2011. There has been a significant rise in homelessness and the associated cost of the rising number of households in temporary and supported accommodation is unsustainable.
The main objective of the review of the Manchester Housing Allocation Scheme provides the means of managing the allocation of a scarce resource (social housing) in a fair and equitable manner, focusing on those in greatest need.
In this update you will hear about:
- The background to the review
- The changes to the scheme
- Moving to the new scheme
The speakers will be Mark Ellison, Project Manager, Housing and Residential Growth and Councillor Joanne Midgley, Assistant Executive Member for Housing Regeneration
