About HomeChoice

HomeChoice is a way of allocating social housing through choice, giving you a greater say over where you live. HomeChoice allows you to choose which available properties you want to be considered for.

Please note that shared ownership housing is not allocated through HomeChoice. If you want to know more about options for low cost home ownership, please visit

Social housing available to rent is advertised every week on HomeChoice. The advertising period starts on a Wednesday and finishes at midnight on Monday, one week later. This may vary occasionally to allow for holiday periods such as Christmas. You must be eligible for social housing and have an active HomeChoice application in order to place a bid on advertised social housing.

If you have any queries about a new or existing application you can contact the Housing Team by emailing or calling 01295 227004.  All emails relating to existing applications should have the Housing Register reference number and the last name of the lead applicant in the subject line, to help us deal with your enquiry as quickly as possible.
