We are invited to have our say on a new housing policy for Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council.
The councils are coming together to provide an enhanced single housing service for both areas under the new Homes First department.
As part of this initiative, the councils have updated and aligned their Housing Allocations Policies, to ensure staff work effectively and that their approach is consistent.
Councillor Ron Maskell, Cabinet Lead for Housing at Lewes District Council, said, “We would like to hear from as many people as possible about their views on this policy as it is a key part of making sure we provide the best possible housing service to people living in Lewes district and Eastbourne.”
Councillor Alan Shuttleworth, Cabinet Lead for Housing at Eastbourne Borough Council, said, “The policy explains who is eligible to join the Housing Registers, how applications are prioritised and information on how to apply and bid for a home. It has been designed to benefit those with the most urgent housing needs, and we would welcome people’s feedback on it.”
