The B-with-us Allocations Policy is changing…

B-with-us is a partnership made up of five local authorities and twelve housing associations who work together to allocate social housing in the Pennine Lancashire area. It is the system Hyndburn Borough Council and its partners use to allocate most of our available social rented properties in the Hyndburn and the Pennine Lancashire area.

There are currently over 9,000 active applicants on the B-with-us Housing Register, but each year only approximately 2,500 of these applicants are rehoused, with new applicants applying every day. This is because only a small number of households leave their tenancies to make homes available.

Due to homes being in such high demand, B-with-us have to make sure that available homes go to those who need them most.

To do this, B-with-us have been reviewing the rules they use to decide who gets social housing, to make sure they help those with the greatest need, and they want your views.

Please visit https://togetherhousingdigital.co.uk/form/6cFubhOq/khi10nZcE/b-with-us-survey to complete a short questionnaire to give your views about the changes to the B-with-us Allocations Policy.

The consultation will be available from 13 December 2019 to 24 January 2020.
