Transfer incentive scheme

To make the best of our limited housing stock we have a list of which households are eligible for each type of property.

We also award additional priority to those that are in Council or housing association property that is bigger than they need and are willing to move to a smaller property. Where someone is freeing up a larger property in a high demand area we have a transfer initiative scheme, providing a cash payment and/or assistance to help with the costs of moving and setting up a new home.

For more information contact the Council on 01529 414155 and ask to speak to the duty Housing Options Officer.
