Have your say on the West Northamptonshire Housing Allocation Scheme consultation

To be considered for social housing in the Daventry area you will need to apply to join the Daventry housing register. We are due to change to a new IT system on 18th May when you will be able to apply online. Please email us at: request the link to apply online. Please note that we cannot provide this link until we go live on 18th May 2022.   

To make the best use of the very limited housing stock owned by the housing associations in the district and significant increases in the amount of people wanting to be rehoused, the housing register is restricted to make sure those with a qualifying need are given a higher priority to be re-housed.

These restrictions are in line with the  Localism Act 2011, which has allowed local authorities housing polices, or allocation schemes, to be reflective of the local circumstances.

Medical self-assessment

If you suffer from a medical condition or a disability which is affected by your current accommodation, or if you have current welfare issues you will also need to include this information when you complete the online application.

In accordance with  the Council's Housing Allocation Scheme adopted July 2017 (reviewed July 2019), medical needs may be taken into consideration on your application. It will depend on how your current accommodation affects your medical issues. 

If you are having difficulty in your current property due to issues relating to illness or disability, you may qualify for assistance from our  Care and Repair service. You can  find out more about Care and Repair here.

What happens next?

Once your application has been processed you will be sent a letter. If you have been accepted to go onto the housing register your letter will detail your priority and the reasons we have given you that priority. It will advise you of the types of properties that you are entitled to register an interest in and your account or ‘Pin’ number that you will be able to use to access your housing register account online. 

Once your application has been activated you can start to bid for properties you are eligible for. If you do not qualify to be registered you will be notified with detail of the reasons for refusal.

If you wish to make an appeal on either your eligibility to be registered, or your banding, you will be required to put your reasons in writing addressed to the Housing Options Manager within 21 days of the banding or refusal letter.
