The service was paused in line with national guidance at the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March and following new government guidance ,on how councils and other social housing landlords can start to safely allocate and let properties again, we are getting ready to re-open the service.
It will be following national guidance closely and have been working hard to review their procedures to make sure they can operate in a way that assures the health and safety of both customers and staff.
Anyone who is looking for a home with the council or a housing association can find out more information and register their bids on available properties from the 17 June at www.choosenmove.org.uk
Customer Service Centres remain closed at this time, customers will not be able to access the centres to register bids and should make alternative arrangements to access the system online.
Cllr Cathy Scott, Cabinet Member responsible for housing said: “I am delighted that we are able to re-open this much needed service, in order to provide affordable, quality housing to those that need it most.
The pandemic has highlighted the importance of having a place to call home and restarting this service will help bring families together, provide individuals with much needed security and give space to those that have been sharing but really need a place of their own.”
