Lettings Review Engagement Survey

Closed 20 Mar 2020

Opened 28 Jan 2020


The current lettings scheme (known as HomeChoice Bristol) sets out how to apply for social housing, who can apply and what type of home is offered.

The current housing situation in Bristol presents many more challenges than when the lettings scheme was first introduced, and we now need to decide if it still works for Bristol and its citizens. 

We need to make the best use of our limited housing, creating mixed and balanced communities, without disadvantaging those people with the greatest need for social housing.  We also want the application process to be quick and simple to understand.

The review will give us the opportunity to look at who is housed and why and develop options for letting social housing in the future.

To help us achieve this we are talking to people affected by the scheme as well as the wider community.  We are also working with social landlords, the voluntary sector and various community groups.  You can let us know your views by taking part in a short survey.

We will use your feedback to develop different options for the scheme. These proposed options will be consulted on in 2020. 

The survey is open until 20 March 2020. 

If you would like a paper copy, Easy Read copy or an alternative format, please call 0117 922 2400 or e-mail lettings.review@bristol.gov.uk

Community events

We are holding the following area community events in association with local community organisations to understand local housing issues and how our lettings decisions affect communities. 

Tell us about the housing situation in your area, how the council's lettings decisions affect your community and how you think we can improve the way social housing is let. 

Priority for these events will be given to residents of these areas.  Please register for an event using the links below.
