home choice plus
Bromsgrove District Council and bdht have joined up with Malvern Hills, Stratford on Avon, Worcester, Wychavon and Wyre Forest local authorities to develop Home Choice Plus, a sub regional choice based lettings scheme.
Housing Association properties that become available in Bromsgrove District will be let through this scheme.
Housing applicants, including transfer applicants, will be able to complete one housing application form and be able to view and bid for properties across the participating local authority areas. Whilst each local authority involved in the scheme has agreed a common allocations policy, housing applicants may not receive the same priority for housing across these local authority areas. For example, if an applicant has a local connection to Bromsgrove only, they will receive a higher banding priority in Bromsgrove than in the other participating local authority areas.

Important Message about Housing Benefit
As part of the Government’s Welfare Reform Bill, changes to housing benefit means that tenants of a working age will not receive full housing benefit if they are under occupying their home by one or more bedrooms.
