Local Lettings Plan for one-bedroom Council owned flats at Salter Close and Whitehouse Road

This report is a proposal to put in place a Local Lettings Plan at Salter Close and Whitehouse Rd. To help address the current issues in the area and to reduce the impact of any new lettings on existing residents following the de-designation of these flats.

The one-bedroom flats at Salter Close and White House Road are currently designated elderly and the lettings to the             flats are restricted so that only housing applicants aged 40 years or older can apply for vacant properties.

These flats are due to be de-designated this year and the minimum age restriction used reduced.  So that in the future housing applicants in housing need aged 18 years or older will be able to apply for vacant properties if they are considered suitable for an offer.
