Housing Allocations Scheme

Page 1 of 14

Closes 1 Jun 2021

We want homes to go to local people.

What happens now?

You can’t be on the register unless you have a “connection” to Southwark. You have a connection if you have lived in Southwark for 5 years or worked in Southwark for at least 9 of the last 12 months, or have close relatives here.

What we are proposing.

1. You will only have a connection if you have lived in Southwark for the last five consecutive years. Working local connection criteria will only apply to key workers who, through their work, are completing a community contribution. Do you agree with the change?
